The purpose of this course is to teach the social, economic, political, and technological changes in American History, from its beginnings to 1877. Students will receive instruction coordinating with the Marion County Social Studies curriculum guide to help them master the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) for content. In addition to that, the curriculum incorporates the Language Arts Florida Standards (LAFS) for literacy. The students will improve upon their critical thinking skills as we take an active approach to learning, by using effective teaching strategies.
I have attached to this course description a link to the syllabus. Please take some time to review it prior to the school year beginning. I do not mind printing out a copy for your student upon request.
