Description
In the first part of this course, students will be immersed in American History. From the American Revolution to World War II, they will be taken on an exciting journey as the United States grew from an infant nation into a world power. Students will study the growing pains of expansion and the struggle to establish state rights and federal rights that led the nation into the Civil War. Then, they will study the Reconstruction era through the turn of the century, focusing on urbanization and industrialization, two forces that catapulted the United States into the 20th century. Learners will explore how the United States participated in WWI and WWII, including key turning points that set the United States up as a world power. In the second part of the course, students will explore topics ranging from the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement, to 9/11 and its aftermath. The United States has played an important role in world politics as well as experienced major growth and changes at home. By the end of the Cold War, the world was changing and the United States experienced an economic boom. With success comes struggles and conflict, so students will take a close look at the attacks of 9/11 and its aftermath. This, then, will bring learners to modern times where they will focus on the impacts of the Age of Technology and climate change.
