In the humanities department at VSC, teachers will utilize a project- based platform to maximize opportunities for the students to build their skill sets in reading, writing and critical thinking by being exposed to literature, history and current events.  Students will make connections between English Language Arts and the history of the world and America.  At VSC, students will practice and employ such skills as research, collaboration, presentation, inquiry, questioning and synthesis to obtain knowledge and formulate their own claims with supported evidence.
