American Studies section integrates English 11 and 20th Century America

In 2017-18 CJ Hansen, social studies teacher, and Michael Soehl, English teacher, will be implementing a double block course that integrates 11th grade English and U.S. History.  The course is newly designed and thematic based rather than following a strict chronology.  Students will be learning literacy skills in a 20th century history platform starting with a unit on the theme "Democracy".  Both Hansen and Soehl have experimented with personalized learning ideas of voice, choice and learner autonomy and hope to implement these concepts in the new interdisciplinary course.
