History Showcase

LEAD's History courses encourage students to not only learn about the past and how it affects us today, but about it's art and pop culture and how it has carried on into present day.

 

World History

War Through The Lens of Art and Culture

Facilitated by Mr. Fisk

Benjamin S. (9th)

 Depicted here is a concept of a WWII propaganda poster that would have been distributed throughout Britain. The mustache image in the center alludes to Adolf Hitler’s infamous figure. Below the mustache are multiple iconic European landmarks and items from parts of Europe in which Hitler has conquered thus far. The very bottom of the poster reads “To Berlin!,” a message encouraging support for what was seemingly the final push in the European theatre.

Landon T (9th)

The Project that this was made for was where we had to pick certain pieces of art from the worst wars in history and explain the meaning behind them.  We were supposed to analyze the pieces. So I picked 5 art pieces, 3 from the first world war and 2 from the second world war and found the meanings of them, as well as where they were from, and how they were made.

AP Psychology

Facilitated by Mr. Motta

Experimenting in Psychology

Psychology is a science, so in order to truly understand the science of psychology students must participate in the science of it by conducting their own psychological experiment replication.  In conducting their own experiment they get to experience the reality of what being a psychologist is all about.  Students will identify an interest, design a methodology to test a hypothesis, and then collect data to make their own conclusion concerning the area of interest.  Students will be a real psychologist studying how different variables affect people’s behavior!
