This course of study is a continuation of the sequential United States History program. It incorporates themes, merged with chronology as a method of structure, for the period from 1865 to the present: 1) Economic and Social Forces in American Studies; 2) Reform Movements; 3) The United States in a World Setting; 4) Causes of War; 5) Labor; and an optional unit, 6) The Negro. The foundations of the course are fundamental social concepts with the integration of various aspects of twentieth century western Europe into these themes. These objectives are: 1) improved utilization of the tools of research, critical thinking, and communication; 2) understanding of the geographic influences of peoples' lives and on events; 3) understanding of the concepts of space and time; 4) understanding the importance of trade and communication; 5) understanding of war and national participation in world affairs; 6) understanding how and why governments attempt to promote economic security; 7) understanding efforts in the United States to make our social system more consistent with the beliefs expressed in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights; 8) development of the concept of interdependence, and the impact of ideology. Many of the learning activities listed in this guide are designed to implement the problem-solving method; reading and audiovisual materials are given. (Author/SBE)
