This year long American history course is a continuation of the 2017-18 school year course: American History: the Early Years (although it is not necessary to have taken that first). The course will cover the Civil War through today’s current events. My desire is that we will learn not only the factual history of this era, but also hopefully glean practical lessons in courage and inspiration that will help us grow in empathy, citizenship and critical thinking skills. The course will consist of weekly reading assignments (textbook) and several novels as well. Also, course work at home will include videos, note-taking and internet research. Class time will include group discussions, note-taking, review, videos, group activities, hands-on activities and quizzes.
Textbook: The American Journey: Modern TimesThis is a Homeschool Tutorial. Class length is 32 weeks divided into 2 – 16 week semesters.
