South Carolina History
We will focus on the history of South Carolina and the role of our state and its people in the development of the United States as a nation. We will learn about our state’s development during colonial times, the growth of the American ideal which led to the American Revolution, the rising controversy over slavery, and the Civil War. We will continue our study of South Carolina from Reconstruction to present time, with a focus on the struggle for social justice and economic diversity. Instruction will include many social studies literacy skills for the twenty-first century learners, including vocabulary and writing assignments.
