In this 32 week, 1-1/2 hour class we will explore American history from the time Native Americans were the inhabitants of America to modern times. Special emphasis will be given to important documents that led to the development of America and to current events. Different forms of media will be used to address events and people in our country’s history. Students will also be given opportunities to develop their creative writing and presentation skills. We will use the Notgrass Exploring America curriculum volumes 1 & 2 as well as the American Voices book of original documents. You will need to purchase that on your own.
