SURVEY of UNITED STATES HISTORY HONORS OVERVIEW
From the first colonial settlements through today’s society, students will embark on a more rigorous yearlong study of our nation’s history. Students investigate the economic, political, and social revolutions that have transformed our country into the nation it is today. Units progress through the course by taking an in-depth look at events such as those surrounding the creation of the Constitution, the Civil War, our nation’s involvement in World War I and II, as well as cultural aspects of our society. From writing about life in the colonies to analyzing landmark Supreme Court decisions, students are better equipped to compare what happened in yesterday’s world with what is going on in our modern era. Throughout this Honors course, students continuously analyze primary and secondary sources relating to the period of study. Incorporating activities from other disciplines gives students the opportunity to connect history to other subjects. Students read excerpts from novels like Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle, and poetry such as “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus. Activities such as writing a petition and analyzing various Presidents’ speeches encourage students to perform throughout the course at a higher level.
