American History
8:30 - 9:40 am
American History Texbook This class demonstrates that history is a dynamic story rather than a static collection of names and dates. It shows an ongoing narrative, exploring historical evidence that teaches us about the past while revealing connections to the present. The text propels students to think critically about the many forces that continually create and re-create the history of the United States. The diversity and complexity of the nation and our understanding of it lends new perspectives on the past.
