US History

Students examine major turning points in American history in the twentieth century. During the year, themes such as the expanding role of the federal government, impact of technology on American society, equal rights, and the role of the U.S. as a world power may be emphasized to directly connect understanding of the United States today to our nation’s past. In each unit, students will examine strands of American culture, including but not limited to literature, art, and mass media. The course begins with a unit linked to the tenth grade study of the global spread of industrialism during the nineteenth century. Students expand their academic skills of research, reading and writing in the content area. A research paper using MLA style is required.
