Thinking Like An Historian

Our students look closely at key events in history, searching for answers to our overall essential question, "How have key events in history impacted the lives of the people who experienced them?" Our overall focus is on the PEOPLE in history, not dates or events alone. We believe that if we understand more about the people before us, we will learn more about ourselves.
