Humanities Teacher - Residential Posted Apr 28
Maine Coast Semester at Chewonki , Wiscasset, ME
The humanities teacher instructs two of three Honors United States History classes and one section of Lit for our 11th-grade students each semester. One United States History course is taught at the Advanced Placement level and is a chronological survey of our nation’s past, emphasizing the political, economic and social forces that have shaped our past and present. This course specifically prepares students to successfully complete the AP US History exam that is administered by the College Board in May. The Honors United States History course is taught thematically, using essential questions that invite students to wrestle with key concepts, trends and the habits of historical thinking. In the fall semester the course incorporates the history of native peoples and the first European settlements through the Civil War; spring semester the course spans the second half of the 19th century through the late 20th century. Both semesters highlight particularly relevant histories of Maine and New England.
