        The study of U.S. history is not only a means to understanding our country’s past and its present, but also a tool to learn how to think, to write, and to speak logically and critically.  You must also be able to support your position with evidence gathered through research.  Students will be encouraged to form their own intelligent opinions.
       This course provides students with a general understanding of the political, economic, and social changes occurring within American society from 1865 to the present.  As a survey course, it will not be a chronological account of all of American history.  The course instead will highlight important historical events and movements while incorporating themes explored in contemporary American History.

CLASSROOM POLICY

1.      Follow all policies as outlined in the student handbook.
2.      No food or drinks allowed in the classroom.
3.      Testing irregularities result in a “0” (for both parties).
4.       Be seated before the tardy bell sounds.
5.      Pick up after yourself.(supplies, text, etc)
6.      No sleeping allowed.
7.      Do not gather at the door before dismissal.

9.      Bring your notebooks daily and be prepared to work.
10.     Electronic devices are not to be visible unless so designated by the teacher.


GRADING POLICY

1.      Grades will be determined by the following:  55 % Test;  20% Daily;  25% Quizzes
