Course Description:
This is the second of two courses that comprise Honors U.S. History. In this course, the student will learn about the people, events, and ideas that shaped the United States from World War II on. The student will begin by exploring the causes, events, and effects of World War II. Then the student will study the Cold War era and the tumultuous events of the 1950s and 1960s, including the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War. Next the student will learn about the latter part of the twentieth century, including the scandals and economic troubles of the 1970s, the rebirth of the conservative movement and end of the Cold War in the 1980s, and the information revolution of the 1990s. Finally, the student will consider the challenges of the twenty-first century. Throughout this course, the student will study primary sources, and use both primary and secondary sources as a basis for a semester-long research project.
