Dating back over fifty years, New Dimensions is an interdisciplinary, team-taught humanities class. Students examine four core social studies units, each combined with a corresponding literature unit. Psychology, philosophy, anthropology, and sociology comprise the social studies units, while Shakespeare's Hamlet, Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning, William Golding's Lord of the Flies, and Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye provide the literary aspect to each unit. Along side the curriculum, students write a year-long research paper exploring two opposing sides of a topic of their choice. The year culminates with a class trip to New York City.
