course introduction
Course Introduction

United States History and Government Regents


United States History and Government is a chronologically organized one year course of study. The course traces the human experience in America from the founding of our nation to the present.

course description
Course Description
  • United States history is the history of a great experiment in representative democracy. The basic principles and core values expressed in the Declaration of Independence became the guiding ideas of our nation’s civic culture.
course description1
Course Description
  • Adoption of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights codified these principles, but, as the history of our nation shows, that document and its amendments represented only the first step in achieving equality and justice for all. United States history since the Declaration of Independence has witnessed continued efforts to apply these principles and values to all people.
course description2
Course Description
  • The course curriculum includes the major political, economic, and social trends in United States history. A significant portion of the course, moreover, will consist of social history. Students will examine the histories, perspectives, and contributions of all Americans and a wide range of human events, focusing on common people and everyday life.
  • The curriculum includes many examples that describe how individuals and groups throughout history have challenged and influenced public policy and constitutional change. These examples and this course of study should help students understand how ordinary citizens and groups of people interacted with lawmakers and policy makers to make a difference.
