Academy of Art & Technology   A Lighthouse California Partnership Academy

Grade 11: Theme: Identity


Classes:
American Literature, United States History, Chemistry, Digital Imaging (web design, graphic design for print)

This year's curriculum is centered on the theme of Student Identity. Students create their own Identity Package which includes a personal logo, business stationery and business cards. In addition, students create a resumé and an All About Me brochure/website. In United States history and American literature, students focus on the individual's identity in American society, investigating and analyzing the life of an individual social activist in American history. The culminating interdisciplinary project is a comprehensive brochure or web site, based around a social activism event, which students present to lower grade level classes. This satisfies their service-learning requirement for graduation.
