Engagement Strategies

Suggested instructional strategies to support the Social Studies Practices, develop critical thinking, and engage students in collaborative inquiry.

The high school United States History course focuses on the Post-Civil War era through modern American events and issues. Students will analyze effects of the Reconstruction Era, examine the impact of immigration and the settlement of the American West on American society, and evaluate the economic effects of the industrialization, including the changing role of the United States in world affairs at the turn of the twentieth century. The student will also describe the social, cultural, and economic events between the World Wars, investigate and analyze the Great Depression, the causes, events and effects of World War II, and the foreign and domestic policies of the United States since World War II.
