What is History for at Meridian High School?
The intent of our History Curriculum is to develop students who can use an understanding of the past to appreciate how the world works today.
Why does History as a subject matter?
We want to enable our students to think for themselves about the past and understand how history shapes our world today. In a world where students encounter fake news we want to enable our students to make their own interpretations of events based on evidence.
What does History help young people to achieve?
History enables students to write well-written essays, expressing opinions, and use evidence. The ability to do this is a skill that is highly regarded in a wide range of careers from business to journalism.
