In the Upper School History department our course offerings are built around essential questions and themes as much as they are based on content. We are currently in the process of introducing Digital Humanities to the history curriculum, first through a new course entitled Digital Inquiry: The History of Youth, and then throughout the Upper School curriculum over the next three years. It is our desire to reimagine our curriculum in grades six through twelve, in order to include meaningful digital projects. In grades six through ten, digital projects hosted by a variety of institutions will be integrated into the curriculum, and in grades eleven and twelve, the elective courses will require students to create their own digital projects
