PER 4 AND 5 SOCIAL STUDIES

Class Introduction:

Students in this class will explore United States history from early European explorers (circa 1500) up to the American Civil War (approximately 1861). We will focus on civics (the student's rights, roles, & responsibilities that goes along with citizenship) and the presidential election process. It is my expectation that students walk away from class with a better understanding of how current events are shaped by our past and how we can change our future by knowing what the past has taught us.
