History

Develop Your Point of View

History courses introduce students to important events and trends, world geography, and the political, intellectual, and artistic expressions of various civilizations. Students are challenged to consider problems on multiple levels, facilitating a deeper understanding of the complexity of society and the consequences of human judgment. The curriculum includes a regional studies program that is unprecedented at the high school level. Students in the 11th-grade take courses in Latin American, Chinese and Asian, or European history. This interdisciplinary program provides an opportunity to study the history of several areas of the world that fundamentally shaped contemporary society. Students hone their ability to think and write critically, express their ideas, and defend their points of view.
 

Suffield’s history curriculum teaches students to:

• Become a culturally literate and responsible world citizen
• Develop critical thinking skills to consider problems on multiple levels & from varied perspectives
• Build strong analytical reading, writing, and research skills
