AM HIST 2

Honors American History II will guide students from late nineteenth century period through the early 21st century. Students will examine the political, economic, social and cultural development of the United States from the end of Reconstruction to present times. Honors American History II will trace the change of 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. An emphasis is placed on the expanding role of the Federal government and Federal courts as well as the continuing tension between the individual and the state. The desired outcome of this course is for students to understand the cause-and-effect relationship between past and present events, recognize patterns of interactions and understand the impact of events on the United States in an interconnected world.

The course is challenging and requires students to take greater responsibility for their learning by participating in problem-seeking and problem-solving, scholarly and creative process, critical analysis and application, reflective thinking, and the expression and defense of ideas generated through the study of the content. Honors American History II follows the same course of study as the corresponding standard level course; however, the material is taught with greater complexity, novelty, acceleration, and reflects a differentiated curriculum. Honors American History II is distinguished by a difference in the quality of work expected, not merely an increase in quantity.
