We will be studying American history in a different, much more interesting way this year. We’ll be analyzing 5 major themes that have guided our history:
Our Character and Belief System
The Immigrant Experience
The Minority Experience
Business, Labor & Reform
War and Peace
Students will be working through a unit at their own pace within a small group. We will give you all of the assessments and resources to answer the essential question of that unit, you will have a specified amount of time in which to accomplish it, and then you will take an exam on a specified date. This is a student-initiated approach, facilitated by teachers, and requires diligent work and being on-task each day.
