American Threads

This course blends the content of US History with American Literature in a blended classroom (using traditional classroom interactions with on-line material).  The coursework is approached thematically not chronologically.  Overall, we are answering the question:  What does it mean to be an American?  First semester we will cover US History and Literature through the perspective of civil rights and tolerance.  The second semester, we will start again and look at history through the perspective of the American Dream, starting in the early 20th century and move through to the end of the 20th century.

World Studies

This course blends the content of World History with 10th grade English Language Arts in a blended classroom (using traditional classroom interactions with on-line material).  The coursework is approached thematically not chronologically.  Overall, we are answering the question:  What are the causes and effects of the Industrial Revolution and Imperialism in the modern era?  First semester we will cover the establishments of governments and major Enlightenment thinking.  The second semester, we will explore the human costs of building world powers through empires and nationalism.  In ELA, we actively build empathy for these historical events and bridge connections from the past to the present through readings of short stories, poetry, fiction, and non-fiction.
