US/VA History

EL Government

US/VA History - This year we are learning about the history of the United States and Virginia from the Founding of Jamestown in 1607 to the aftermath of 9/11 attacks in 2001. Particular emphasis will be given to the development of an independent United States democracy, territorial expansion, the causes and impact of the Civil War, industrialization, immigration, the role of the US in two World Wars, the Great Depression, the Cold War, and the Civil Rights Movement. We will mostly rely on lectures, guided readings, and videos. Work outside of class time will be essential!  

EL Government - This class is designed for English Language Learners. We will learn about different types of Governments, the US Constitution, The Branches of the US Government, Elections, and Economics. Particular emphasis will be given to the importance of Democracy, Citizenship, State and Local Government roles, and the importance Individuals play in our Democracy. We will mostly rely on lectures, video, readings, and projects. This class is co-taught with the class Strategies for Success with Mr. Matthew Clark.
