U.S. History

In this course, students examine major turning points in twentieth century American history. The following themes are emphasized: the continuing tension between the individual and the state and between minority rights and majority power; the emergence of a modern corporate economy; the impact of technology on American society and culture; the change in the ethnic composition of American society; the movements toward equal rights for racial minorities and women; and the role of the United States as a major world power. In each unit, students examine American culture, including literature, art, drama, education, and the mass media. Students also examine American character and social/political institutions.
