History helps us craft narratives of the past based on the interpretation of a wide range of artifacts from the past. Through the study of history, students learn to compare elements of their own culture with those of other cultures and from other time periods. Students consider the impact, lives, and perspectives of individual men and women in the histories of both the United States and the world, while appreciating the significance of national and trans-national structures and forces such as cultures, economics, the environment, gender, religions, politics, and war. Students both examine those historical perspectives that are well represented by the documentary record and consider ways of recovering perspectives that have been silenced.
