US History in Spanish

SOC6070

The course emphasizes active and critical exploration of history covering the period from the Civil War through WWII. Analysis of primary sources will introduce students to the voices of people who make history. Through classroom discussion, experiential activities and individualized research, students explore patterns of change, the continuity of ideas and defining turning points in US History. Students use the central concepts of capitalism, democracy, equality and justice as a backdrop in their investigation of the following topics: the rise of industrialization, organized labor’s response, the immigrant experience, the struggle for racial equality, and the emergence of the U.S. as a world power following the Great Depression and the two world wars. An additional focus of this course is to improve students’ writing, reading and discussion skills in Spanish and in alignment with the Common Core State Standards.  This course is conducted almost exclusively in Spanish. This course is designed for students enrolled in the district’s Dual Language Immersion programs. Other interested students should consult with a guidance counselor prior to registering for this course.
