U.S. - UNIT PLANS
Below I have posted general unit plans for all our units of study. Things may change over the course of the semester, but this will give you a general overview of the course.
UNIT PLANS - U.S. HISTORY P.
11.1 UNIT PLAN
This unit will explore U.S. History from before the founding of the country until the end of Reconstruction. We will investigate the major people and events that led to the Founding, major conflicts including the Revolutionary War and the Civil War including the build-up to these events and the impact of them, before looking into Reconstruction and the tone it sets for the course.
11.4 UNIT PLAN
This unit will explore American expansion and WWI. This period of time marks an increase in American involvement overseas as the country grapples with the idea of becoming an imperial power and how that conflicts with foundational American beliefs. This unit will also explore American hesitation and eventual involvement in WWI.
11.7 UNIT PLAN
In this unit we will focus on American involvement in WWII, starting with Pearl Harbor and tracing American strategy in the Pacific Theatre, before focusing at home. We will spend time looking into Special Fighting forces and investigate Japanese Internment. Finally we will engage in a structured class debate on the choice to drop the bomb.
