In the Curriculum

Efforts in Increase Diversity in the ESA Curriculum
  • Western Civilization I has been replaced with a World History course that covers civilizations across time and geographic area.
  • Texts by people of color and by women have been added to every upper school English course.    
  • ESA introduced a semester-long world religions course taught by the chaplain, Fr. Andrew Armond, for all eighth graders.
  • The English Department is reimagining English IV. The new format will consist of one-semester electives. The potential topics, both fiction and nonfiction, include works by diverse authors.
  • Freshmen in English I complete a diversity book club unit. The selected texts include diversity-based conflict and high-interest cultural and marginalized narratives. Within the context of these popular texts, they explore tone, archetypes, counterclaims, and media bias in the classroom alongside their friends.
