The American Journey (New York edition)
Welcome to United States History Studies and to Glencoe's The American Journey. The content of this course focuses on the political, economic, and social events that have shaped the United States. You will be viewing and interpreting periods in U.S. history from various perspectives, including historical, geographic, political, economic, and cultural. Together, these perspectives can help you to understand how the past has led to our present and to appreciate your role in shaping our future.
Your textbook includes a variety of tools designed to help you be successful as you study U.S. history. One of the most valuable of these is a list of the objectives that you will be expected to master by the end of the school year. This list is called the New York Core Curriculum and you can find it on pages NY8-NY24 of this book.
Knowing what you are expected to learn from the very beginning of the year will help focus your study of U.S. history. It will also help you and your parents or caregivers see when you might need extra help in mastering the concepts of a particular unit of study. Such extra help will ensure that your study of U.S. history will be both enjoyable and successful.
