This course explores the story of United States history from the early stages of European exploration to the Civil War. During this time period, we will encounter many interesting people, places and events that have shaped U.S. History, for good or for bad. As students, we owe it to our ancestors to learn history. Remember, the events that we have experienced in our lifetime will be history for future generations to learn.
Supplies: One five subject notebook and at least one pocket folder.
Homework Assignments: Homework is not given to keep you busy after school. It is a necessary learning tool. I do not give busy work. Everything assigned will count towards your grade. Remember: You are always expected to re-read and re-learn your class notes at home.
