Course Description:
This is the first of two courses that comprise United States History. This course will explore the growth of American society and the emergence of the United States as a world power. The course covers the significant developments in America's past from Reconstruction to World War I with a brief review of early settlement, colonization, and the development of America as an independent nation. The student will focus on American political, economic, and social history from a chronological point of view. Activities in this course are designed to develop the student's abilities to question, read, analyze, interpret, and evaluate different forms of information, as well as to communicate his or her ideas to others. Geography skills will be interwoven in the lessons, as the student makes connections between the evolution of America's geography and its historical impact.
