Ms. Jennifer Bryan
Welcome to Social StudiesI'm very excited to be in my 20th year in education! This year, I have three classes of United States History, and two classes of Honors United States History.
In U.S. History, we begin with looking at the Exploration of the Americas, life in the American Colonies, and the road toward Independence. Our first DBQ (Document Based Question) will be about the Declaration of Independence. Following the DBQ, we will take a journey into the revolutionary history of our country, followed by western expansion, the War of 1812, the Mexican/American War, and finishing up with the Civil War. We are focusing on historical methods of inquiry, using primary source documents to formulate a claim, and citing evidence within those documents to support your position.Honors U.S. History will follow the same timeline, but will go more in-depth into certain topics, provide enrichment opportunities as well as class projects and class novels related to our time periods.I'm looking forward to getting to know your student through our history class!
