Students Dig Anthropology Club

FHS’s latest club has fun studying the origin and development of human societies and cultures

After-school clubs are not only a place to hang out; they are also places where students can develop their social skills, maturity, and even academic performance. It provides them with a free, safe space and environment.

Anthropology is a new club at Frederick High School, led by Mr. Nugent. He is currently a teacher at Frederick High School, teaching 12th grade English and AP Literature, but he plans on teaching a Cultural Anthropology class next year. This is a class where students will have the chance to earn AIMS credit while learning what culture is, how it changes over time, and how it affects our communities.

Anthropology is basically the study of human societies, cultures, and their development. Students can share their interest in exploring and promoting different stories of human experience.

Anthropology clubs serve as catalysts for personal growth and lifelong learning. By encouraging intellectual curiosity, they inspire students to learn and join in journeys of self-discovery and cultural exploration.

Anthropology Club is a place for students to discover and learn all about anthropology. The study of humans encompasses anything and everything. It is wide-ranging as it covers cultures, social, and biological dimensions that define us as individuals and societies.

Mr.Nugent said, “We generally have had students or myself present on a topic that they have researched and simply want to share information about. Past presentations have included “The 7 Wonders of the World,” “Kuru: The Laughing Disease,” and “What is a primate?”

He believes the Anthropology Club will benefit students by providing them with a place to learn new things about the world. He believes that this club can introduce them to the world of anthropology, something that students could possibly major in college.

Anthropology has a big impact at FHS because it gives students a place to be after school while allowing them to learn, understand, and relate to the world.

Feel free to stop by an Anthropology Club one day. Their next meeting is Monday, 3/4, at 3 p.m. in Mr. Nugent’s room E121.
