Students will study American history by exploring important historical moments from the Reconstruction era through the end of World War II. Students learn about the industrialization of this growing nation and the economic and social changes it underwent as the nation transitioned from an agricultural society to an industrial society. Students also analyze the challenges the nation faced as it was forced to choose between isolation and involvement in international armed conflicts. This course guides students as they interpret the extraordinary changes the nation went through after the American Civil War and examine how those changes ultimately led to the United States’ emergence as an international power at the conclusion of World War II.
