History & Humanities
Students are required to complete History 9, History 10, and U.S. History before graduation. Classes make extensive use of original documents. Regular analytical writing assignments include document-based essays. In History 10, students learn how to draw a map of the world and participate in simulation-based learning. U.S. History students complete a major research paper in the second semester. One-semester electives available to juniors and seniors involve a significant number of analytical papers and other writing assignments and use original documents, anthologies, and film in exploring the course topics.
