Level 3                                             1 Credit
     This course in American history is designed to uncover the major issues and periods of our nation’s past. The course moves relatively quickly from the colonial era through the 19th century so that most of the time is spent on the twentieth century.  In fact, students begin their yearlong inquiry with a consideration of the post-World War II era, the Vietnam conflict and the various civil rights movements.  The course is organized around essential questions such as “Why did conflicts emerge over civil rights?” and “Did the American Revolution radically change America?”  Students will have a rich experience participating in role-plays, debates and various exercises in critical thinking and writing to develop understandings of our nation’s ideals and institutions that are essential to effective, participatory citizens.
