    1. Schemas.Aschema(pluralschemasorschemata) is a structure that organizes largeamounts of information into a meaningful system. Schemas include our generalizedknowledge about situations (Matlin, 2009). Schemas are plans we learn and use dur-ing our environmental interactions. Larger units are needed to organize propositionsrepresenting bits of information into a coherent whole (Anderson, 1990). Schemas as-sist us in generating and controlling routine sequential actions (Cooper & Shallice,2006).

    1. Humanities is an interdisciplinary course in which students recognize writing as an art form. Students read widely to understand how various authors craft compositions for various aesthetic purposes. This course includes the study of major historical and cultural movements and their relationship to literature and the other fine arts. Humanities is a rigorous course of study in which high school students respond to aesthetic elements in texts and other art forms through outlets such as discussions, journals, oral interpretations, and dramatizations. Students read widely to understand the commonalities that literature shares with the fine arts. In addition, students use written composition to show an in-depth understanding of creative achievements in the arts and literature and how these various art forms are a reflection of history. All students are expected to participate in classroom discussions and presentations that lead to an understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of critical, creative achievements throughout history. Understanding is demonstrated through a variety of media.
