Course Overview: United States History is designed as an exploration of the major events and movements throughout our country’s history. Students will be involved in exploring slavery, civil rights, expansion of the West and the industrial revolution. We will also closely examine the boom and bust cycles of the 1920’s and 1930’s and foreign policy decisions that include the Spanish American War, World War 1 and 2, along with the Cold War. We hope to use the tools of historical analysis and be able to relate the past to the present issues of today. Students will focus on our political, economic, and social institutions and how they changed over time.
