Welcome to United States History and Government/8th Grade Social Studies! Last year you explored the development of America through various stages, from a sparsely populated land, British colonization, colonial revolt and independence, the development of the new nation, sectionalism and it's greatest challenge Civil War as well as some of the other challenges it enountered in it's early years. This year's curriculum will delve into the development of the United States from its "adolescence" to a mature "super-powered" adult. We will utilize a variety of primary and secondary sources from an array of media, such as print documents, photos, video clips, music, etc..., to analyze and discuss of the role the United States both at home and abroad. I look forward to engaging discussions that challenge us all, make us think and have fun.
