Course Overview

US History is the study of the events, people, and culture of the United States over time. In US
History B, you will apply historical inquiry to analyze societal issues, trends, and events of US
history from World War II to the present, including the Cold War, Civil Rights and other social
movements, the Vietnam War, modern presidencies, and responses to global terrorism. 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historical documents for a firsthand sense of how events unfolded.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.
