Length: 2 Semesters
This accelerated two- semester class for Juniors explores the same themes, problems, and issues that are examined in the college prep survey course in American history. This course, however, will go into greater depth, place a stronger emphasis on primary source documents and expert historians’ writings. No formal textbook will be included. Students will make extensive use of American history websites. The homework load will be more challenging and the regular writing assignments will emphasize persuasive argument.
