History is not only about knowing the facts. Students should also explore and discuss the common and complex themes throughout history and make connections among their own lives. History content is closely integrated with Language Arts. Throughout all history courses, the use of biographies, original documents, diaries, letters, legends, speeches, and other narrative artifacts from our past is encouraged to foster students’ understanding and application of historical events and themes. Springs Charter Schools encourages students and their families to utilize learning experiences in their community.
Each year our students also participate in History Day. Students create history related projects and display them during our Springs History Day events. The highest scoring projects move on to district level competitions. For more information about History Day, please click here. Ask your Academy Teacher or Homeschool ES for information regarding this year’s events.
