Brief Course Description

This year’s U.S. History course will trace the growth of the United States after the tumultuous time of the Civil War. We will begin our studies by investigating the factors that led to the establishment of the United States as a great industrial and technological nation. How did resources, new technologies, immigration, and the growth of cities affect the lives of Americans then and now?
 
History becomes more relevant to us when we connect past events to the present. In this course, we will examine historical events through the eyes of the people who experienced them. We will learn the critical thinking skills necessary to examine these events so that we can become responsible and informed decision makers today.
 
As we continue through the year, we will discuss how America became a world power and the continuing challenges that face us in that role today. What lessons can we learn from the past to meet the challenges of a living in today’s global society? How can we become more involved in shaping the future?
