Grade 12 - Social Studies

Texas U.S. History I A - Semester 1 (Credit: 0.50)

US History is the academic study of the events, people, and culture of the United States through time. In Texas US History A, you will learn about the process of historical inquiry, review the events and principles behind the founding of the United States, and apply historical inquiry to analyze societal issues, trends, and events from the 1800s through the Great Depression. Along the way, you will explore timelines to gain an understanding of how events link to each other and analyze historical documents for a firsthand sense of how events unfolded. You’ll also gather evidence from relevant documents and historical texts in order to develop credible explanations of events in US history. You will then use that evidence to evaluate change and continuity over time by writing essays and creating presentations about broad periods of historical development.
