American History 1800-1900.
During the first semester, you will study and complete projects to deepen your knowledge of our state's early settlement, foundation, development, and continued growth. You will also broaden your understanding of your rights as a citizen of the great state of Arkansas and how those rights came to be granted to you.
Second semester, you will delve into a tumultuous period of history in the United States. You will explore the history of U.S. society, politics, economy and growth beginning in the years leading up to the civil war, through reconstruction, and the onset of the industrial revolution. You will explore events/movements that shaped the society that we live in today. You will also become more aware of the differences between privileges and rights that are guaranteed to you as a citizen by the Constitution of the United States of America.
