Welcome to Honors US History 1 (Period 1: 7:20-8:20 in-person, 12:20-12:40 remote)
This course is designed for advanced tenth grade students. The purpose of the course is to provide students with a chronological and philosophical history of the United States from the American Civil War to the New Deal Era. This exposition leads to abstract levels of study that go beyond the requirements of U.S. History I. This seminar style class will study and analyze problems in American history. There will be readings in both primary and secondary sources. Proficiency in reading and writing will be stressed. Completion of an independent research paper is an essential component of the Honors experience. In the course of independent research, students will refine their reading and writing skills as well as master the use of varied media and technology.
