US History Honors covers the history of the United States from the beginnings of exploration of North America to the present day.

Students will develop an understanding of key themes in history, an ability to analyze historical evidence and express historical understanding in writing. Using a variety of sources, this course will emphasize reading comprehension, writing, research, and analytical skills through the lens of the biblical worldview.

Student Feedback

I enjoyed the interactive aspect of the Jamestown Colony activity and thought it was a great way to creatively learn.

I am learning a lot, especially because I am coming from Canada! I am really enjoying the course and am finding it very interesting, thank you so much!

The class is going well so far. This is one of my favorite classes because history has always been an interest of mine. I think the workload is fair, the teacher feedback given is very helpful, and the material is interesting to read about and learn.

So far I have liked the course. At first I was a bit hesitant about the SOAPST but after the first couple I was good to go. I like how you include videos to make it come more alive. I actually like doing the maps because I am not very good with maps so it is helpful as a visual to see where things happened.
