U.S. History study the major turning points in American history. Following a review of the nation’s beginnings and the impact of the Enlightenment on U.S. democratic ideals, students learn to understand the emergence and impact of new technology and a corporate economy, including the social and cultural effects. They trace the change in the ethnic composition of American society; the movement toward equal rights for racial minorities and women; and the role of the United States as a major world power. What we learned about in that class during the 1st Tri was really early America. One thing that we learned were the wars in Europe with the US. Another thing that we learned was the Progressive Era. That was also fascinating because of all of the different points in this time in History, which can be seen down below.
