WHY STUDY HISTORY?

History teaches us that nothing stays the same. In this class, students will learn about and analyze changes throughout history in order to understand how the society we live in came to be. Our goal in this class is to be able to draw clear connections between the past and our present. By the end of this class, students will understand that all things are historical .
