Prerequisite: Successful completion of one year of high school social studies. Students in this course study the political, cultural, and social development of the United States through a variety of writing assignments, discussions, and projects. The course begins with a review of early exploration and settlement of the Americas, the arrival of European settlers on North American soil, and a reflection of personal customs brought by each culture that may still be present in a student's family today. Students examine conflicts with Britain and the ideas that lead to the American Revolution including the pivotal people, events, and outcomes of that war. Students will also explore the importance of the Bill of Rights and its impact on American citizenship, the effects of European migration on Native American cultures, the causes and effects of the Civil War as well as reconstruction, immigration, and industrialization. Students will differentiate the domestic impacts of World War I and World War II, progressive reform, U. S. foreign policy, the causes and effects of the Vietnam War, the Cold War, and culminating with leaders and issues of the contemporary United States. In the online course, students will use multimedia and multimodality resources, quizzes, unit exams and online discussions to establish a chronology and understanding of influential historical events. The text-based course is a rich and varied single primary source full of informative photographs, charts, graphics and analytical graphs. Both courses offer research and writing opportunities.
