This year in United States History 1900 - Present we study about how America changed since 1900.  Our main goal is to investigate the people, events, and ideas that have transformed America into the modern nation it is today.  We will cover a vast array of material –Imperialism, WWI, 1920s, Great Depression and New Deal, WWII, the Cold War, life in the 1950’s, the Civil Rights Movement, attitudes during the 1960’s and Vietnam, and 1970’s to Today.  Our ultimate goal is to prepare to examine “OUR AMERICA LIFE” at the end of the year.
