US History

Page history last edited by Scott Conway 9 years, 4 months ago


As of 11/27/2010, we have 15 class days until semester tests.  Tentatively, the U.S. History semester exam is scheduled for the first day December 20th test number three.


On August 24th, we took a pre test over U.S. History.  The questions came from a variety of sources and materials ranging from tests given in other states to determine graduation, the U.S. citizenship test, what colleges expect incoming freshman to know about U.S. history and more.  We took the test so we can see what we already know, don't know, don't quite understand, to let the students know what we will be covering this year, and to see how much more they know at the end of the year then they knew at the beginning.  They will see these questions again on quizzes, chapter tests, and more than likely both semester tests.

Unit 2 Rift and Reunion

This unit covers the economic, geographic, political, and societal growth of the United States.  We see the geographic, societal, and economic differences between the regions in the U.S. lead to growing conflicts that will eventually tear the U.S. apart.  It also covers difficulties faced by this country as it attempts to reunify and reconstruct itself after the Civil War.
