U.S. History to 1865

Welcome to my class. It's going to be a great 2017-2018 school year!

In my class, students will learn the use of historical and geographical skills to explore the early history of the United States and to understand ideas and events that strengthened the union. Students will continue to learn fundamental concepts in civics, economics, and geography as they study U.S. history in chronological sequence and learn about change and continuity in our country's history. They will also study many of the speeches and documents that laid the foundation for the American ideals and institutions that we still see today. Finally, students will examine the everyday life of people at different times in the country's history with primary and secondary sources.
