US History

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. Students are expected to work collaboratively. Class activities may include small-group work, oral presentations, debates, lectures, and analysis of historical documents. Writing clear and correct prose on creative, essay, and research papers is an important part of the course. A step by step process for writing a research paper is reinforced.

Open to: Sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Students who have completed at least one year at George School may take George School’s online version of this course during the summer.
