Studying United States History can help you be better prepared to solve the biggest challenges society faces now and in the future. Everything has a history. Trees have a history, music has a history, bridges have a history, political fights have a history, mathematical equations have a history. History helps you see the world around you in a new way by encouraging you to learn about and from other people and places. In addition, you will learn how to take in vast amounts of information, how to write and communicate ideas about historical events effectively, and, most importantly, to accept the fact that many problems have no clear-cut answer.
Part A covers the converging of the three distinct groups of people (indigenous American Indians, Africans, and Europeans) through the political formation of the United States of America. This first half of the 8th-grade course ends at the presidency of John Adams.
