Course Description:
Content of this required course in United States history includes significant events, issues, and problems from WWII to the presidential administration of George W. Bush. The course is divided into seven units. This course builds upon knowledge and concepts, acquired in the first course (8th grade). The course includes historical concepts, citizenship principles, and skills necessary for the study of U. S. History. This course will focus on a program that will foster students’ responsibility for scholarship by providing opportunities for students to acquire, develop, and master specific skills. These skills will be developed through a variety of assignments and activities such as research skills, critical thinking and analytical reasoning, and use of primary and secondary sources.

A foundation in history enables students to understand the importance of patriotism, function in a free enterprise society, and appreciate the basic democratic values of our state and nations.
