• U.S. History is an overview of key events and developments in the history of the United States from 1877 to the present. This means you will know people, dates, issues, and events in proper chronological order in history.  You will also be analyzing these events and people through the study of primary source documents.  You will learn to use critical thinking skills in order to begin to understand the causes and effects of why these events happened in history.    This course will prepare students for the U.S. History EOC in May.

  • This course is designed to increase the student’s understanding of United States History from its beginning to the present, its development and institutions. The goals of the class are to develop (1.) an understanding of some of the principle themes in early and modern U.S. History, (2.) an ability to analyze historical evidence, and (3.) an ability to analyze and to express historical understanding in writing and other forms of communication.  U.S. History is a rigorous, fast paced and challenging course designed to be the equivalent of a college freshman U.S. History survey course.  This course prepares students to take the College Board Advanced Placement United States History examination and possibly earning college credit.
