Modern U.S. History – Spanish DLI


Modern U.S. History is a thematic course that surveys the political, social, and economic history of the United States from the post-WWII era to the present day. Students will explore the following themes: the impact of competing ideologies in the past-WWII era, the politics of power and its effects on society, and the challenges in the transition from the Superpower era to a globalized world. In addition, themes such as identity, equity, race, ethnicity, privilege, oppression and power will be embedded to question US government actions and students’ position regarding it and how they can provide solutions for underrepresented groups in US modern society. Within each unit, students will build their historical thinking, reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in the Spanish language.
