    We are a Canvas Course:  Parents, please be advised that the student is responsible for knowing the agenda of the class.  To check the current class agenda, including assignments and due dates refer to Canvas Homepage (or when in class, the class white board) that is updated every Monday. Your student should have a planner - either old-school paper or digital (pictures work)- that they can share with you. 

    We are an Humanities Course: 

    • The humanities entail the study of the human world and society from a analytical perspective. Students investigate humanity itself (hence the name), applying methods to help them understand literature, art, and the past, as well as human morality, culture, and values.
      • Issues that might, from a specific cultural viewpoint, be considered controversial, including depictions of nationalities, religions, ethnicities, dialects, gender, class, etc. are often represented in works of literature and informational texts. Fair representation of issues and peoples may occasionally include controversial(to some) material.
      • The best response to controversial language or ideas in a text might well be a question about the larger meaning, purpose, or overall effect of the language or idea in context. We will seek the larger meaning of a text or issue through thoughtful reading, research and discussion.
      • Students are not expected or asked to subscribe to any one specific set of cultural or political values, but are expected to have the maturity to analyze perspectives different from their own and to question the meaning, purpose, or effect of such content within the literary work as a whole(College Board CED).

    TSD Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in Tumwater

    • AP Equity and Access Policy: College Board strongly encourages educators to make equitable access a guiding principle for their AP programs by giving all willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to participate in AP. We encourage the elimination of barriers that restrict access to AP for students from ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic groups that have been traditionally underrepresented. Schools should make every effort to ensure their AP classes reflect the diversity of their student population. College Board also believes that all students should have access to academically challenging coursework before they enroll in AP classes, which can prepare them for AP success. It is only through a commitment to equitable preparation and access that true equity and excellence can be achieved.
