The American History course began this year with a modern times. Classes began with the 1980 election and progressed forward. Following modern times the course will move through labor movements, Big Business and the United States, wars, economic history, progressivism and conservativism, pop culture, foreign affairs, the Cold War, and more.
The intention is to follow a theme through the book, and allow ours students to learn the material of a general theme before moving to another theme.
The Contemporary World History course focuses the students attention on the post-World War II world. We too began with modern times in America. Following that, students will examine and present work on the Middle East, the rise of China and India, the Cold War, the transition from colonial rule to the new independence throughout Asia and Africa, the growth of Latin America, and an examination of the European Union.
