US Grade 7 - 10
This class will cover American History from Expansion with the Mexican-American War to the beginning of US involvement in World War 2. In week 1, we will look at the Mexican-American War. We will look at why it happened and how it caused the US to expand and add more territory. We will also look at how it deepened the sectional divide that would lead the country to Civil War. In week 2, we will examine the abolition movement- what it was, key players, key opposition, and beliefs and actions...
This class is taught in English.
I am a teacher of social studies. I have taught American History for 6 years. I have also learned from Teaching Tolerance and Carolina K12 at UNC how to teach "hard history"; this includes teaching history of marginalized historical groups. I also had a Carolina K12/University of NC fellowship in oral history concerning Civil Rights. I have worked with marginalized people groups as well.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Those in history affected by the abomination of slavery will be treated with the utmost respect. I never refer to "slaves". I used the term "enslaved people" because they were people above all and slavery was something that happened to them. When we discuss immigration, we will be looking at it from a historical perspective. We will NOT be engaging in a debate on current policy. We are also discussing 4 wars- Mexican American War, the Civil War and World Wars 1 and 2.
