Modern Movement Introduction

Modern Movement is a non-exam, team-taught class which was introduced at the beginning of the year to offer students 16+ an opportunity to pursue theme- and perspective-based learning.  It proposes that the changes which came about in all spheres of Western culture between 1900 & 1925 or, by extension, 1889 & 1929 are less a matter of subject specificity (science, art, literature, psychology, social science) and more a matter of how we see the world.  Multiple examples are given from all fields to support this theme/ perspective thesis.
