"We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience."--George Washington


Come, look back, learn lessons and profit greatly!



 American History fulfills one of the History requirements for the state of Georgia and it is also part of the Companion Class.  The Companion Class is an option for those needing both American History and American Literature.  They are offered back to back on the same day, and taken together, garner 2 credits. It is also possible to take them separately if you do not need both.  


Our area of focus will be from the early 1400s, beginning with Native American tribes and Explorers to the present day.  We will focus primarily upon studying the formation of the United States, its leaders, politics, thought, music, art, industry and people of this great country.  Class time will be comprised of lectures, group discussions, current events and presentations.  Students will also learn all the states, capitals and some major geographic formations in the USA!!!  Come learn about the past and see how it is influencing our lives today!  


Tuition: Sept-May $65/mo   (If students are enrolled in the Companion Class offered by Mrs. Bailey:  American History AND American Lit/Comp, $5.00 will be taken off of the American History class tuition.)


 Fees:  One time $20.00 fee for photo copying primary/secondary sources for students to be used through the year

Textbook: More than likely The American Nation. Information will be sent regarding text when students sign up for class.
