Welcome to 8B United States History!

During this year, we will be exploring early United States History with the goal of understanding how our history and how the idea of "Equality" in terms of the Declaration of Independence is a central part of American culture. My goal for students is that they will continue to develop a good work ethic, be self motivated to learn, develop positive character, "Do the right thing", and understand how the history of our country continues to have an effect on their life.

In the course, we will study the period of U.S. History from colonization through the Civil War and Reconstruction. The focus will be on developing informative and argumentative writing and speaking skills.
