Honors United States History I
Mr. Feeney
Room - Period
 
Syllabus
Description:

United States History I.1 covers United States History from the pre-Colombian period through the early national era (approximately 1828). Topics that are heavily emphasized include the impact of geographic and economic factors on colonial American societies, relations between Europeans and Native Americans in the colonial period, the historical roots of the American revolution, and the development and application of the US Constitution. There is no prerequisite for the course, although students are encouraged to take it as sophomores after completing both semesters of World History in ninth grade. Two levels of the course are offered: College Preparatory and Honors. Both levels provide multiple opportunities for students to gain and demonstrate proficiency in the graduation standards outlined in this document; the Honors course involves more rigor than the graduation standards demand by delving more deeply into content, incorporating multiple reading materials that are above grade level, and requiring more frequent, sophisticated  written assignments.
