8th American History
This course will take students from the early beginnings of our great country through the Civil War and Reconstruction. We will begin the year with Exploration and the first permanent English settlement of Jamestown. Next, we will analyze the colonies' similarities and differences in relation to religion, economics, politics, and geography. From there we will encounter the events that led to the signing of the Declaration of Independence and The Revolutionary War. We will cover the Revolutionary War itself and then delve into The Constitution as the framework of our government as well as The Bill of Rights. Lewis and Clark will help us explore new territory and gold will take us all the way out to California. Lastly, our class will engage in and study the events and concepts that led to The Civil War, the War itself, and the country's Reconstruction after The Civil War.
