Course Overview

US History is the study of the events, people, and culture of the United States over time. In US
History A, you will learn about the process of historical inquiry, review the events and principles
behind the founding of the United States, and then apply historical inquiry to analyze societal
issues, trends, and events from the Civil War through the Great Depression. You’ll explore
timelines to gain an understanding of how events link to each other, and you’ll analyze historical
documents for a firsthand sense of how events unfolded. You’ll also gather evidence from
relevant documents and historical texts in order to develop credible explanations of events in
US history. You’ll then use that evidence to evaluate change and continuity over time by writing
essays and creating presentations about broad periods of historical development.

Course Goals

By the end of this course, you will accomplish the following:
Build the skills of historical inquiry, including gathering sources and analyzing documents.
Solidify an understanding of the American Revolution and the founding of the United States.
Review the events leading to the Civil War and the primary battles and events of the war.
