Students will develop critical thinking skills in the discipline of history, while studying the events, people, and places that are a significant part of United States history since 1865. An emphasis is placed on the use of historical thinking skills to analyze and interpret history through primary and secondary sources.
IMPORTANT: 1st Quarter Benchmark!!!
Students will have a benchmark exam on October 31st (periods 1,5,7) or November 1st (periods 1,4,6). This is not a test that students need to study for - it is an assessment of historical thinking, reading, and writing skills that have been taught and practiced in class over the past 9 weeks.
