U.S. History – Week 9


The word of the week is perspective! This week we will continue to focus on our introductory question, “How does starting the story of the United States with the Pilgrims affect our perception of history and our actions in the present?”

We will begin to distill the information that we have learned about the early settlements of the United States, and we will hone our discussion skills while employing and practicing critical analysis.

The content focus of our week is to complete chapter 3 and begin preparing for our study of the French and Indian War.

Check back early and often for updates as the week progresses!
