Welcome to US History! Have you ever turned on the television, read an article online, or listened to the radio and wondered how we got here? Throughout this course, we will examine the building blocks of American culture, economics, politics, and power in order to better understand our contemporary world. If you want things to change, you have to know where they are coming from. Even if you don't want to change anything, knowing these things will help you sound smart and surely entertain all your friends.
This week, we will focus on getting to know each other, fixing any scheduling issues, and learning what the world was like before 'Murica was around to keep things safe. Check back every Friday for updates on the class and assignments.
