Project Connect - Asheville School Summer Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies

The Humanities approach is the idea of making horizontal connections, and they are making these connections between art and politics and literature. What's great is that students, especially those students who have been with us for four years, are making these incredible vertical connections as well. They can go across disciplines, but they can also go back and down through the years pulling ideas from the very beginning.

Tim Plaehn, Asheville School Humanities Teacher
