HISTORY & SOCIAL SCIENCES- rising juniors and seniors only

Economics (Online Course) This online course will seek to introduce students to the “dismal science,” give them the knowledge and skills they need to master the fundamentals of economics, keep them on top of economic current events and provide them with a new set of tools they can use to analyze the world around them. This course is an intense online learning opportunity that requires disciplined study habits, active online participation and a good deal of personal responsibility.
There will be a required on-campus meeting in which students must be present at EHS at 10:00 am on June 1.

U. S. Government: This course provides the student with a survey of American government and politics, with an emphasis on the federal government; relationships among federal, state, and local governments; and the roles, effects, and influences of non-governmental institutions on the governing process.


SCIENCE – rising juniors and seniors only

Marine Biology: Study of the marine environment, oceanography, marine diversity (survey of marine plants and animals), and marine ecology. Lab exercises will be conducted to emphasize laboratory skills, proper technique, safety, report writing, and analysis.

Astronomy: Students will learn about such topics as the motion of celestial objects, the lifecycle of stars, and the planets that compose our Solar System. Students will use various technologies such as remote-operated telescopes and a web-based planetarium software to aid in the learning process. The material in this course will emphasize a conceptual understanding of astronomical principles and will not require rigorous mathematics.


PERFORMING ARTS

Beginning Dance: Beginning Dance is an entry-level course introducing ballet, hip-hop and jazz terminology and execution. Students will build a solid foundation and experience the fun of dancing on a regular basis. Beginning Dance affords each student the opportunity to grow in body awareness, flexibility, strength, musicality, creativity, and confidence. Students will experience styles including ballet, modern, jazz, contemporary, and hip hop.

Computer Music: This course is open to all grades and will provide students with an introduction and continuing development and techniques associated with a composition production and recording of music using a computer-based platform. Students will learn to compose and create new music exclusively through digital means using professional audio software. In addition, students will also gain experience with recording techniques for more traditional acoustic performances and how these might be integrated into the digital platform.

This course is open to rising freshmen, rising sophomores, and rising juniors.

 

Health: The purpose of this course is to engender in students an awareness of the whole person, body and mind. This course gives students an idea of the choices they make in their nutritional intake, their relationship dynamics, and a sense of their place in the larger community. Topics include self-concept, nutrition, substance abuse, anatomy and physiology, relationships, sexuality, and first aid.
