• Course Description: This course of study supports students with emotional disabilities to develop competence in analyzing American history from the Great Depression to WW II with the Greatest Generation. In this class, students follow the general education modern American history curriculum with modified assignments at a more individualized pace.  These smaller classes provide more step-by-step instruction to learn how the Cold War vaulted us into the Atomic Age and how we as a nation dealt with the rising Communist threats around the world. Students will investigate the Civil Rights movement and its impact on modern issues. While investigating the past, students will also investigate the current issues of our times and try to make connections to the future and beyond while enhancing students’ knowledge and understanding of how we fit into the global world of today.
