This yearlong course will, in conjunction with US History III, analyze the course of US History thematically. During the first semester students will explore the themes of America at War and Americans Making a New Start. During the America at War unit, students will evaluate major military conflicts in American History. During the Making a New Start students will examine the experiences and contributions of immigrants and migrants from the arrival of Europeans and West Africans in the 1400s to the current issues of immigration and migration. During the second semester of this course students will evaluate the themes of The Struggle for Equality and The American Economy. During the Struggle for Equality unit students will analyze the experiences of Native Americans, women, African-American, Asian-Americans, and other minority groups that have and continue to work towards an equal place in the American republic.
