Class Description:

In grade eight, American Studies begins in 1492 with Exploration of the New World and ends in 1877 with Reconstruction. This course incorporates the four strands of the state of Ohio social studies standards which include history, geography, government, and economics. This study follows the journey of our country from exploration, through colonization, to the making of a new nation and government, the Constitution, early Presidencies, westward expansion, the Civil War, and Reconstruction. Projects and research will reinforce the students understanding of the material.
