San Diego Jewish Academy
10th Grade Humanities
Fall 2001
Syllabus


Integrating language arts, world history, art, design, and technology to achieve the goals of the California State Standards and inspire a true love of learning.
California State Standards

WORLD HISTORY, CULTURE, AND GEOGRAPHY: THE MODERN WORLD
Students in grade ten study major turning points that shaped the modern world, from the late eighteenth century through the present, including the cause and course of the two world wars. They trace the rise of democratic ideas and develop an understanding of the historical roots of current world issues, especially as they pertain to international relations. They extrapolate from the American experience that democratic ideals are often achieved at a high price, remain vulnerable and are not practiced everywhere in the world. Students develop an understanding of current world issues and relate them to their historical, geographic, political, economic, and cultural contexts. Students consider multiple accounts of events in order to understand international relations from a variety of perspectives. - http://score.rims.k12.ca.us/standards/grade10.html

what do we wish for you,
on this, the first day of summer?

the dignity of freedom,
the song of wholeness,
the desire to twist your heart around,
the responsibility to repair the world.

and if the second or third day
of summer
is grey or lonely,
and the fourth or fifth
is quiet or hopeless,

we wish for you
calm dignity,
clear song,
unfettered desire,
grounded responsibility.

we exhort you to
press on with your work
beyond fear,
which is the only barrier
to finding your treasure.*

and on the sixth and seventh day,
we wish for you
understanding

the understanding that
you contain
the treasure
you seek.
