This thesis is an outline for a high school humanities course. Included are plans for thirteen units that progress through a yearlong study of the Western humanities. These units are titled: Prehistory and Aegean Civilizations, The Greeks, The Romans, Religions Overview, The Middle Ages, The Renaissance, Baroque Arts and Literature of the 1600s, The Scientific Revolution, The Enlightenment, Revolutions in the 18th Century, -Isms: 1800 - 1914, Multiculturalism, and Our Era: 1945 - Present. Each unit consists of a list of focusing questions to guide discussion, a general calendar outlining the activities to be completed on certain days, and a one- to two-page unit summary. This humanities course is intended to be a high school elective for seniors. The plans assume that any and all resources needed would be available, and that funding and scheduling would not hinder any field trip possibilities.
