United States History Course Description

In this course, the second part of a two-year study of U. S. History that begins in 8th grade, students study the history of the United States from Reconstruction to the present through the use of reading, research, writing, and interpretation of maps, charts, graphs, and tables.  Historical content focuses on political, economic, military, diplomatic, and social events and issues, including the contributions of significant groups and individuals to the history of this country and the impact of geographic factors on major events.  An important part of the content is the development and application of the principles of citizenship.  Students will use critical thinking skills to explain and apply methods of interpreting the past, including points of view and historical context.  They will use a variety of rich primary and secondary source material, such as biographies and autobiographies, Supreme Court cases, novels, speeches, letters, diaries, poetry songs, artworks, photographs, documentaries, and films.

 

Dual Credit United States History Course Description

This course provides the opportunity for students to receive both high school and college credit at the same time.  Students who enter this course must meet the enrollment criteria of Texarkana College and must pay their tuition at TC for three hours of college credit each semester.  Grades will be recorded both at Redwater High School and at Texarkana College and will appear on each institution’s transcript.  The course will be based on the same criteria as US History Through Reconstruction and US History Since Reconstruction, including all reading, writing, and projects.  Document-based questions are addressed and outside reading is assigned.  Student products and essays are vehicles for demonstrating mastery.
