Texas U.S. History I B - Semester 2 (Credit: 1.00)

US History is the study of the events, people, and culture of the United States over time. In Texas US History B, you will apply historical inquiry to analyze societal issues, trends, and the events of US history from World War II to the present including the Cold War, the Civil Rights and other social movements, the Vietnam War, modern presidencies, and responses to global terrorism. You will explore timelines to gain an understanding of how events link to each other, and you will analyze historical documents for a firsthand sense of how events unfolded. You will 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
