Bridge Academy

Psalm 32:8

Modern U.S. History

Teacher: Julie Hobbs (juliehobbs4@yahoo.com)

Description: This course is designed as an intensive survey of American history from Reconstruction through to the 21st Century.  Although the student will develop a solid chronological timeline, the emphasis of the class will be on understanding the “who, what and why” behind the events that shaped our history and critically analyzing how those events affect our lives today. The class will have a socratic element as the students discuss the decisions and philosophies of the leaders.
