In this chronological survey of the history of the United States, topics covered include the political, economic, geographic, and social realities of the nation’s past. The class moves at a swift pace, deepening the students’ capacity to interpret and analyze reading material of both primary and secondary sources. The first mod covers the Foundations of Modern America, the second mod covers the American Century, and the third mod allows students to choose a focus topic dedicated to in-depth research: Civics, Culture, Identity, or International Relations. In lieu of one of these 3 focus mods, students can complete the US History requirement by taking all 3 mods of either African-American History or Intersectional Women’s History.
Students who have completed at least one year at George School may take George School’s online version of this course during the summer.
