This course explores U.S. history from the earliest settlements to the dawn of the 21st century. Using an interdisciplinary approach, students are encouraged to integrate information, discover patterns, and develop critical thinking skills in their responses to significant issues and events in American history. Throughout this course, students are required to use information from a variety of sources to evaluate causes and explore values in history. All assignments are designed to help students think more widely, make connections, and reach their own conclusions. In addition, students have regular opportunities throughout the course to pursue areas of interest and create projects of their own design.

This course is designed to be textbook independent. This means that students can use ANY textbook or other research materials to learn about the lesson topics. The coursebook does not include specific page numbers in the textbook to reference. Instead, we encourage students consult a variety of resources in their learning. Students may want to purchase a United States History or American History textbook to use as the primary reading material, or use any combination of materials, but there isn’t one specific textbook attached to this course.
