DESCRIPTION: In order to include the perspectives of the twenty-first century, the study of Honors United States History will begin with the Federalist Period and continue through the changes in America following the terrorist attack on September 11th.
Honors Untied States History provides the opportunity for advanced work, rigorous academic study, and the practical application of the major ideas and concepts found in the study of United States history. The course requires students to take greater responsibility for their learning by participating in problem-seeking and problem-solving, scholarly and creative processes, critical analysis and application, reflective thinking, and the expression and defense of ideas generated through the study of the content. Honors United States History follows the same course of study as the corresponding standard United States History course; however, the material is taught with greater complexity, novelty, acceleration, and reflects a differentiated curriculum. Honors United States History is distinguished by a difference in the quality of the work expected, not merely an increase in quantity. This course will only provide graduation credit for students who entered high school prior to the start of the 2012-2013 school year.
