U.S. History 1

This course focuses on major turning points in American history in the twentieth century. It begins with a foundational review of U.S. history: the nation’s beginnings, the Civil War and Reconstruction, westward expansion, the Second Industrial Revolution, the Progressive Era and entry into World War I. The course then takes a structured chronological and thematic approach to an in-depth study of the United States in the first half of the twentieth century. Topics covered include minority rights and majority power, the movement towards equal rights for women and minorities, the emergence of a modern corporate economy, the Great Depression and the New Deal, and events leading to U.S. involvement in World War II. The competencies in this course are aligned with the History-Social Science Content Standards for California Public Schools. This course has been approved to satisfy the “a” (historysocial science) subject area of the UC/CSU “ag” requirements for freshman admission. The NCAA has approved this course for use in establishing the initial-eligibility certification status of student-athletes from schools in the Division.
