History



At PCD we expect our students to have both a broad knowledge of historical sequence as well as a mastery of the detail found in topics with a narrower focus. Included in the curriculum are national and world perspectives, as well as consideration of the value and intimacy of personal histories. Middle School history courses begin with a broad picture, and progress through the grades to a more focused study of historical subjects, as the students become more adept at making connections and exercising their skills. We encourage the development of active learners through many "hands-on" projects and presentations. Curiosity is a habit encouraged through historical inquiry, and our goal is to inspire students to become lifelong inquirers.
