About The Course

They  examine the beliefs and philosophies that informed the American  Revolution and the subsequent formation of the government and political  system. Students investigate the economic, cultural, and social motives  for the nation's expansion, as well as the conflicting notions of  liberty that eventually resulted in civil war. The course describes the  emergence of the United States as an industrial nation and then focuses  on its role in modern world affairs. Moving into the 20th and 21st  centuries, students probe the economic and diplomatic interactions  between the United States and other world players while investigating  how the world wars, the Cold War, and the “information revolution”  affected the lives of ordinary Americans. Woven through this  chronological sequence is a strong focus on the changing conditions of  women, African Americans, and other minority groups. The course  emphasizes the development of historical analysis skills such as  comparing and contrasting, differentiating between facts and  interpretations, considering multiple perspectives, and analyzing  cause-and-effect relationships. These skills are applied to text  interpretation and in written assignments that guide learners  step-by-step through problem-solving activities.
