American Studies is a history class. We will focus our attention on four main units and topics will include the American Revolution, Constitution, Bill of Rights, Westward Expansion and the Civil War. All of these events continue to shape our culture, politics, and the world around us. We will utilize many different ways to learn this material, and hopefully bring history alive!
Technology is a wonderful resource and we are lucky to have access to computers, smartboard technology, and student response systems. Take care of our technology and classroom so we can continue to learn in a 21st Century fashion.
