(1st Period & 4th Period)

This course will guide students through American history from the late nineteenth century through the early 21st century. Students will examine the political, economic, social and cultural development of the United States from the end of Reconstruction era to modern times. The desired outcome of this course is for students to develop an understanding of the cause-and-effect relationship between past and present events, recognize patterns of interactions, and understand the impact of events on the U.S. in an interconnected world. 

(3rd Period)

This course will address six (6) periods in the study of World History, with a key focus of study from the mid-15th century to the present. The progression is grouped around a basic core of chronologically-organized periods and events in history; students will study major turning points that shaped the modern world.  As students examine the historical roots of significant events, ideas, movements, and phenomena, they encounter the contributions and patterns of civilizations of the past and societies around the world. They broaden their historical perspectives as they explore ways societies have dealt with continuity and change, exemplified by concepts such as civilization, revolution, government, economics, war, stability, movement, and technology.
