Junior High Humanities

Join Allie to explore history, current events, and the many creative ways humans tell their stories. Ever wondered what life was like in early civilizations? Have you thought about where your ancestors lived and who lived on this land before you? Are you looking for ways to write down your feelings, thoughts and ideas? Find out what’s happening in the world around you, and how to write about it in Jr Humanities. Writing not your thing? – Allie has an idea for that! She will work creatively with students in this course to express their ideas in a format that best suits them and shows their learning.

Your Educator – Allie Entwhistle

Allie was born and raised in Kelowna, and has been working with youth for over a decade. Her first job was as a ski coach, and her favourite job was as a camp counsellor at a Boys and Girls Club summer camp in the Okanagan. She holds an honours degree in Linguistics from UBC (ask her about phonology!) where she worked with a team to help document a previously undocumented Tanzanian language. In Allie’s other life, she is an improviser and sketch comedian. She has taught improv to people of all ages and is the Artistic Director of Improv Camp – a summer camp for teens who love improv. She is excited to be bringing her love of improv and creative learning to Brainboost!
