Global History of Ideas (GHI)
Granada Hills Charter High School - GHI Global History of Ideas Program

The Global History of Ideas Program presents a unique curricular approach in 9th through 12th grade English and Social Studies. A team of teachers collaborate to integrate the philosophical foundations of classical Western and Eastern philosophy with core literature.

The English Language Arts course is comprised of texts that provide philosophical, literary, artistic and historical approaches to the influences that shape our world. In conjunction with the ELA course, students are enrolled in science and history classes that compliment ideas learned in the GHI program, so that students can understand multiple perspectives in analyzing texts.

Students develop critical reading, writing and thinking skills through interdisciplinary essays and reading of primary texts. Interested students have the option to participate upon enrollment.
