Abstract

This is an American History curriculum which in six units covers six distinct topics in American history from the time of Columbus arriving in the Bahamas through the Civil War. For most units, I have provided some suggested lessons and assessment pieces, as well as tips for navigating the lessons through some challenging issues. The curriculum doesn’t have complete lesson plans, or assessments, and it is not intended to be used as a textbook or teacher workbook. It’s intended to be a guide on how to teach American History in a way that focuses on students’ skills and on history’s usable lessons. I developed this curriculum while working with high schools students who were at-risk, and the lessons and activities reflect this as much of the work is done as a class, or while actively assisting students. However, the curriculum and lessons can easily be adapted to various ages and abilities. This curriculum is designed to make the study of American history an activity which builds the fundamental skills students need to be successful in school, in work, and as citizens.
