Although math and English language arts are considered two of the most important subjects in school, a deep understanding of the past will help students become better prepared to handle their future as citizens of the world. History has a tendency to repeat itself, and because of this, it is important to understand where a country has been in order to understand how it could function in the future. In this United States history course, the following topics will be covered as a means to give...
Students will become more empathetic, knowledgeable citizens who understand US history from the roaring 20s to the post-Cold War era.
My bachelor’s degree is in Social Studies Education, so I was not only taught history, but was also taught how to respectfully teach historical events in a non-biased manner. In addition to this, my history course load was made up of US history courses such as the traditional freshmen-level US history courses, American Women’s History, The New South, etc. I also took Africa and the Slave Trade as my required non-western civilization course. Lastly, I have been approved by the College Board to teach this course at the Advanced Placement (AP) level and taught it the last 3 years at my previous school.
Students will only have homework if they do not finish their classwork assignments. On occasion, this could be a partner/group assignment.
I will provide guided notes each week. Students will need to be able to have access to Google Slides/PowerPoint and Google Docs/Microsoft Word each week. On occasion, students may need to use computer paper and colored pencils or markers, but I will let them know ahead of class time if they will need it.
Students will be assessed through informal discussions and exit tickets.
1 hour 25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
With the nature of the class, discussions of the laws and executive orders designed to discriminate against and segregate various racial and ethnic groups such as Black Americans, and Japanese Americans will come up. Students and families should understand that the things that make us uncomfortable about history are the things that will help us become empathetic citizens who learn to respect and appreciate those around them. And hopefully, it will help us to avoid repeating the same mistakes made in the past.
We will use resources from Learning for Justice, formerly known as Teaching Tolerance. I will also use information from my former textbook, American Pageant, the 13th edition. Lastly, I will pull in information and resources from books such as A People's History of the United States, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, etc.
