US History Survey EVP


US History Survey covers the history of the United States from the beginnings of exploration of North America to the present day. Emphasis is placed on the Christian foundation on which the United States was founded. 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.

Special Instructions:

The first semester of this course (HIST310 A) closely mirrors Social Studies 8 A in content (US History to 1877). If SS8 was taken previously, it is encouraged that students take US History 102 as the next step in course sequence.

HIST 310 covers the history of the United States from the beginning of exploration of North America to present day. We will have fun projects, group discussions, and games to practice what we are learning. Emphasis will be placed on the Christian foundation on which the United States was founded. Students will learn about key court cases that still affect us today. Also, students will study the internet and how it has changed America. Join me in learning more about The United States of America.

The Enriched Virtual Program is a really great opportunity to get to know your teacher and your classmates better! We meet for class weekly and review the week’s material as well as study for upcoming assessments. We pray together and interact with discussion questions. We often view video clips together and discuss them, and sometimes we even take virtual field trips! I would be very pleased for any interested student to join us as we journey through U.S. History together!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
