TEXT:   United States History Since 1877 (McGraw Hill), Mastering the TEKS in United States History since 1877 (Jarrett Book).




COURSE OBJECTIVE: Students in grade eleven study the major turning points in American history in the late nineteenth,twentieth, and early twenty-first century. Students will build upon the tenth grade study of global industrialization to understand the emergence and impact of new technology and a corporate economy, including the social and cultural effects. An emphasis is placed on the expanding role of the federal government and federal courts as well as the continuing tension between the individual and the state. The rights and freedoms we enjoy are not accidents, but the results of a defined set of political principles that are not always basic to citizens of other countries. Students understand that our rights under the U.S. Constitution are a precious inheritance that depends on an educated citizenry for their preservation and protection.

  • ..      Daily Grades:  Daily grades consist of daily class work, homework, readings, maps, and activities.  You will be expected to participate         in class discussions.  You will be expected to read portions of your textbook as well as supplementary materials as homework and as     preparation for classroom activities.   Homework may be given nightly.  Daily grades are 20% of the nine weeks average (15% Honors).

  • ..      Quiz Grades:  Quizzes given will be announced and should be studied for as if taking a test.. Quizzes could cover readings from the text,       homework, current events, or notes and will count as 25% of the nine weeks average.

  • ..      Make-up:  The student is responsible for all missed work because of absences and will be permitted one day to make up work for each     day of the excused absence. The responsibility for completing make-up tests rest entirely with the students.  It is the student’s responsib   ility to get make up work from the teacher after the absence. Tests and quizzes must be made up within one week of the student’s                         absence.  Students will complete make-up tests by appointment.  If this is not accomplished, the result will be a zero for that test.
