AJH Social Studies Course Description

AJH Social Studies Course Description:


Aurora Junior High (AJH) Social Studies classes are survey courses in Early American History beginning with the formation of American Government following the American Revolution through the end of the Civil War.  Topics will include the Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark Expedition, Indian resettlement, the Constitution, and the Industrial Revolution among many others. The primary emphasis will be that students grasp a general understanding of the foundations of the country in which they live.  Studies will also reflect the benefits of being a good citizen with examples of failures and successes of the generations of people that came before your student.   7thGrade students will start in or around the newly established Constitution and go to the Westward Expansion.  8thGrade students will start with Westward Expansion and end with the Civil War.
