• US HISTORY II – Syllabus

    US History & Geography @ 2012 - Chapter 15-31

    DESCRIPTION OF COURSE

    This course, United States History II, is a requirement for High School graduation. It includes the study of political, social and economic changes that have occurred in the United States from 1890's to the present.

    This course has been designed with the expectation that current events will be an integral part of the whole rather than a separate segment. African-American history, multicultural studies, New Jersey history, local history, career education, and global studies have been infused with United States history throughout the course.

    United States History II is the continuation of United States History I, which is mandated by the State and completed in 10th grade.
