The American Promise by James L. Roark textbook--combined version, any edition
This class covers a time period in United States history that deals with problems of racism and discrimination, as well as efforts made to correct those problems in the legal, economic, and societal institutions of the country.  This class will utilize primary documents from a variety of sources to give voice to those marginalized groups throughout those struggles.  Parental guidance is always encouraged to help students evaluate those ideas and struggles in United States history.  
Primary documents will be provided in class.  Students will be expected to find and purchase the textbook for the course.  I highly recommend taking my one time class on evaluating primary documents prior to the start of this course.
