U.S. History Part 2

This course will cover topics in US History beginning with The Gilded Age of the early 19th Century and concluding with a study of modern events and politics of the 21st century. We will also cover topics related to the American Government including its origins, development, structure and functions. This course will be textbook independent and students will be encouraged to discover a broad range of resources related to each topic, to include historical essays, video documentaries, internet research and printed texts. A list of suggested materials will be provided with each topic, as well as recommended textbooks for students who learn better with highly structured materials. All assessments will be assigned with each student's abilities taken into consideration and highly adaptable to allow students to rely on their individual strengths to demonstrate what they've learned.
