Cal Coast Academy's History and Social Science courses provide our faculty members with multiple avenues in which to measure students' course knowledge and understanding. Students demonstrate their capabilities of effective collaboration and communication through classroom discussions, individual and group projects, portrayals of historic individuals, and group presentations on historical events. Assessing documents, writing papers, preparing and presenting speeches, discussing current events, and relating historical happenings to current-day critical governmental issues also assist students in mastering their critical thinking and practical understanding abilities. Students' ability to create Powerpoint study guides prior to written examinations further substantiates the necessary use of practical skills and innovative technologies.
