U.S. History 10 (Spring)

Prerequisites: none
Who the course is designed for:
all 10th grade students

United States history is taught as a three-semester sequence, allowing time to devote significant attention to the development of American government, the evolution of the American economic system and the post-World War II era in which today's students live. Sophomores begin their study by examining the origins of American government during the colonial era, experimentation with a new form of government following the Revolutionary War, national growth and expansion and, finally, the Civil War and Reconstruction.

The course covers a great deal of material, so students are required to read carefully and analytically and to synthesize the information they learn. This synthesis is communicated in short essays that require a clear thesis statement and strong supportive evidence.
