Welcome to the History Website

COURSE GOALS

In the course of study to history, we do not rely simply on memorization of names and dates. Rather, we emphasize a deeper understanding of concepts and the relationship to causes & effect, The inquiry into history then becomes decipherable and more meaningful. These courses above all seek to teach students how to raise good questions and recognize the Big Ideas with under the surface questions, as to understand the significance of our historical studies. As a result  students will come to understand the broader spectrum of our human condition from the past and relate history to our current existence and possible future, i.e. to become more motivated and capable learners as Active Learners!
