This is an intensive US history course for late elementary and early middle school students. We will read a great deal of material (audio available) and students must have done that reading/listening to get the most out of our class discussions.

We will move quickly through the second half of The History of US and use both A Young Person’s History and the primary sources at Gilder Lerhmann to enhance our understanding US History.

Many resources will be provided for students who wish to engage in project work, and summative assessments are also available for those students who wish to assess their learning that way. Directed writing assignments for interested students are available, please ask if you would like this option.

Students completing both part 1 and part 2 will be well prepared for high school level US History.

The History of US, Joy Hakim, available in audio editions
A Young Person’s History of the US, Howard Zinn
