8th Grade United States History Overview

Course Overview

This year we will be studying the era following the Fall of Rome in 476AD, to the American Revolutionary War!  We will watch as Europeans gain a thirst for knowledge and travel beyond their homeland into new worlds and see their settlers create a home in that new world.  Finally, these colonists will fight for their independence and create a new nation…the United States of America.

In addition to the curriculum outlined above, we will also be following the 2012 election and completing election portfolios of the candidates and the issues of this year’s election.
