US History Honors EVP


In this topical approach to US history, students will analyze trends and themes that reoccur over time. Students will develop their ability to communicate clearly through writing, using strong historical evidence and centering their Christian worldview. Emphasis will be placed on reading comprehension, particularly of primary sources, and independent reflection, as well as research and the use of reliable sources.

NOTE for Honors: US History Honors (HIST350) is an enriched version of HIST310. The supplemental analysis, texts and assignments in the Honors course allow students the opportunity to reinforce their learning as they gain a deeper understanding of the material. Students are supported by the teacher and by the lessons themselves as they work through the course. Students in the Honors course can expect an average of 1-2 hours of work per week in addition to the regular course content.

Special Notes:

This course is a part of the honors track. Intentional focus will be on the knowledge and skills required to prepare a student for success in future upper level and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.

Join me for an in-depth exploration of important moments in US history! In this class, we’ll be analyzing primary sources, including texts but also art and photographs. We’ll be doing a lot of thinking, writing, and discussing, as well as fun projects! The way this class is organized by topic will give you an excellent opportunity to compare ideas across historical events. You’ll have a great foundation for applying those ideas and Christian principles to modern-day events as well!
