Course Description

American / U.S. History (9th - 12th grade)
The goal of this class is for each student to develop a love for the history of the United States from a Christ centered perspective. We want each student to walk away with an understanding of where we came from so they can embrace where we are going. Students will not only read and discuss the history of how the United States was created, but will learn from people who lived these historical events and have the opportunity to visit a few historical locations outside of the classroom. Students will learn about the development of the United States as a nation in order for them to become informed and empowered citizens. The course begins with early American settlement, then moves on through the formation and early years of the nation, the Constitution, and the many challenges that have threatened survival. Students will develop their critical thinking skills as they learn to use their knowledge of the nation’s history to make informed decisions about issues on a local, state, and national level.  Students will be encouraged to take notes in class and ask questions both during class time and during the week via phone, email, or by designated personal sessions. There will be homework each week that will be graded by both completion and accuracy. Students will also be graded on tests, quizzes, and potential projects.  Related fieldtrips are being considered.
