Avonworth High School Curriculum
An effort has been made over the last five years to add courses to the high school options that are designed to provide an opportunity for students to take a deep dive into current and historical issues.  Teachers have designed these courses to allow students to investigate, question, analyze, and discuss these important issues. Students engage in critical and challenging conversations throughout these courses as they dive deeply into this critical content.  
Learning Through Literature
Teachers in both the middle school and high school have worked hard to create a diverse literary canon (books, narratives, texts) across all courses.  It is important to share that literature is read by Avonworth students across all courses and not only in our reading/English courses.  For al ist of the literature that Avonworth students are exposed to across core courses, please use the following link.

Race, Class, & Gender
Race, Class, & Gender is an introduction to the study of society through the critical analysis of social relations, behaviors, and organization.  Students develop a broad knowledge of how social structures and human behavior influence each other, as well as the issues that arise from such interactions.  
Modern Dilemmas
Modern Dilemmas is an elective course available to juniors and seniors who wish to explore controversial current event problems and issues.  Students analyze dilemmas that challenge our society and evaluate their successes, failures, and ramifications.  During this course, students become informed citizens with the tools to make responsive and informed civic decisions.
Genocide Studies
Genocide Studies is an examination and analysis of 20th and 21st-century genocides.  Attention is given to studying the Holocaust, which provides a framework for the examination of other genocides including, but not limited to, the American, Holodomor, Cambodian, Rwandan, Sudanese, and Yazidi.   

Celebrating the Chinese New Year
Each year, Chinese teacher, Mrs. Jia Li, and her students present performances for classmates at the high school to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Students pack into the large group instruction space to watch and learn from their peers. Student performances shared what they have learned about Chinese culture.
