American History continues the process of developing in students an understanding of and appreciation for God’s activity as seen in the record of man and his relationships. The course covers early American exploration to the present day, placing special emphasis on the politics of the 18th and early 19th centuries and the Civil War. These areas of focus target three major content strands: History, Geography, and Government and Citizenship.
Students follow the history of America from settlement through the battle for independence, and from industrialization through its impact on the world today as a global power. Students will continue their learning as they look at the footsteps of America's earliest explorers as they go back in time to discover the roots of this nation, chronicle its development, and examine the events that marked turning points in its becoming a global power. Lessons include instruction on the foundation of the Republic, its relationship with England, the Continental Congress, the slave trade, regional lifestyles across the country, the Depression of the thirties, industrialization, the Vietnam conflict, and America today.
