The history curriculum focuses on the development of each student’s understanding and appreciation of the historical, economic, and social relevance of the events and institutions of the past and the present, in order to be better able to relate to the present and prepare for the future. ¬†Ultimately, Genesis Preparatory School offers courses to help our students develop a realistic and mature understanding of our lives and our world. We want to help guide students to appreciate the complexities of our community and the hopes and aspirations, as well as the challenges and difficulties, that stimulate the actions of individuals and nations. ¬†Our faculty use a variety of teaching methods such as lectures, note taking, cooperative learning, analytical and critical reading, class discussion, and research using primary and secondary sources. Evaluation of student progress is based on various types of testing, research papers, oral presentations, and verbal participation.
