Students will engage in a long-term study of A Young People’s History of the United States. This class is discussion based with a project focus.

Each week, there will be guided comprehension questions that help student’s get the most out of the readings. Videos suggestions will also be sent as they apply to the topic. In class, our conversations will be guided by a series of thought questions created by both the instructor and the students.

At the end of the class, students engage in a project-based endeavor when they choose one event or person to present to the class. The presentations will allow for personal creativity and a deeper dive into their chosen topic.
