What We're Working On and Class Announcements
U.S. History
Throughout the 1800's, the U.S. played a limited role in world affairs and many European nations did not think the U.S. was a world power. This changed late in the century as confidence in America and its leaders grew. This unit will show how the U.S. was brought into the world picture.
World History
Many changes came to Europe between 1348 and 1600. People began to question old beliefs and show an interest in learning, creativity, and independent thinking. Historians call this time The Renaissance. Students will see how the Black Death affected Europe. They will travel to Florence to see the beginning of this rebirth of learning. The will meet writers like Shakespeare, Cervantes, and Chaucer and marvel at the artistry of da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Santi
