High school students study the major turning points in American history in the twentieth century. Students will begin with the creation of the United States and move throughout American history to understand the emergence and impact of new technology and a corporate economy, including the social and cultural effects. They will trace the change in the ethnic composition of American society, the movement toward equal rights for racial minorities and women, and the role of the United States as a major world power. Students consider the major social problems of our time and trace their causes to relative historical events. The ultimate takeaway from this course will be for students to critically address and assess why the United States has a complex legacy as one of the world’s global powers.
The aim of this course is to enable the students to:
The objectives of this course are:
Objective A: Key Ideas and Details
Objective 2: Craft and Structure
Objective 3: Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
Students can expect one major (summative) project at the end of each unit. Minor oral, written, multiple choice (formative) assessments will be given weekly, along with other daily classwork and groupwork. Specific assessments that will occur each semester will be: synthesizing their understanding of primary source text to interpret history by writing to source, completing research, and presenting projects to show their creativity to solve problems or address specific issues found in history.
Students will be informally assessed throughout each unit, and formally assessed at the end of each unit. We will utilize subject specific criterion rubrics when assessing. These rubrics will be shared with all students in advance of assessments.
Students will be required to have a digital device (and charger) in class for note taking, and turning in/working on assignments. An uncharged device will not be an acceptable excuse for not turning in classwork. In addition to the digital device, please bring a notebook and a writing utensil.
Textbooks and Resources
Major texts, primary sources, and other resources will be provided by the teacher via email. Students will analyze excerpts from resources such as primary sources, political cartoons, and other sources to master objectives.

Student Behavior Expectations:
All students are expected to help create an environment conducive to effective teaching and learning for all participants. Behavior that disrupts teaching and learning is unacceptable; accordingly, all face-to-face or online interaction should be civilized, respectful, and relevant to the topic.
Honesty and integrity are integral components of the academic process. Students are expected to be honest and ethical at all times in their pursuit of academic goals in accordance with South Hill Academy. We will review the forms that academic dishonesty can take so students can best align themselves with these standards. Any form of plagiarism or academic dishonesty will result in an automatic failing grade and will be reported to the secondary principal and head of schools immediately.
