About CLRC History Classes
CLRC History classes introduce students to fascinating people and events of the past. Students receive a solid foundation for understanding the past as a framework both for future studies in history and a broader appreciation for their own culture and the myriad of other people groups and cultures that exist today. Students are encouraged to engage with the figures of the past not as something foreign to themselves but as fellow human beings who have struggled, conquered, and failed in their own world just as we do today. Class discussion and writing assignments emphasize student’s engagement with the material and critical thinking skills. High school level courses emphasize primary source texts.
"To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain forever a child."
"Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum."
