AS I Honors

Welcome to American Studies I Honors.  This year we will be studying the history of our nation using the Constitution as the primary lens.  We will begin our course with the issues confronting the new republic in the late 1780s.  Over the next ten months you will be reading, analyzing, discussing and debating the events that helped shape the nation we know today.  You will become familiar with how to read and interpret primary sources as we use then in class each and every day.  You should be well read with the information in the textbook, The American Pageant, as it will be the foundation of all that we do in class.

You will have opportunities to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the material through a variety of assessments, assignments and projects.  Much of what we do in the course of the year will be group related.  You should become familiar with the district's 21st Century Competencies as you will be tasked with working them into everything you do both in and out of the classroom. 

I look forward to a great year as we travel together through the courses of time of the American experience.
