The US and The World History (a.k.a. US History II) course provides students with essential understandings of the various social, economic, religious, and political forces interwoven in the expansion of the United States and its evolution from hemispheric influence to a global superpower in the Twentieth Century, all resulting in significant changes to the global landscape, political stage, and world economy. Students should expect engaging, bell-to-bell instruction, purposeful and focused activities, and authentic skills-based formative and summative assessments. Much of the workload for U.S. History II is focused in the classroom where the expectation for students is to come prepared to meet the goals of the days' lessons through active engagement and participation. Students will receive homework based upon the need to further demonstrate the understanding of concepts or skills as indicated through the curricular learning objectives. Both primary and secondary texts and documents of appropriate rigor and challenge are used, including many documents found/retrieved by students independently in class via multiple forms of technology. Students study historical issues of major significance, including Progressivism, women's rights, segregation and discrimination, immigration, world wars, economic collapse, social reform, and the domestic turbulence of civil disobedience, assassinations, drugs, unpopular war, economic strength, and the importance of an educated electorate to democracy.
