    US 11 American History Part 2




    I teach college level dual enrollment classes for American History and Political Science/Government, and US 11 American History.  We will cover events from the pre-colonial period until the modern era.

    These courses will provide you with a general knowledge of the basic historical themes, events, developments, and persons that have shaped American history.

    These courses are designed to develop and promote critical thinking, communication, and global awareness.

     In economics, you’ll explore the study of human choices in the face of limited resources. The course covers basic market concepts such as scarcity, supply and demand, government regulation, and trade.

    You’ll learn useful life skills in the personal finance section of the course.

    You’ll examine modern issues in economics such as poverty, factors of production, and the complicated problems faced by modern cities.

    Remember, communication is key to a successful course. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email, or Zoom conference --appointment only. 

    Looking forward to the semester!
