United States History

The Beekman School's United States History College Prep Course 

This is a yearlong course designed primarily to present students with historical information that will allow them to form their own judgments, opinions, and perspectives of the history of the United States.  This course will look through the lens of how the United States has become a deeply politicized nation. The course material asks students to examine the present by looking at the political, social, and economic forces that have shaped the past.  The course will begin with the exploration of the continent and go on through the nation’s involvement in World War II, with a constant awareness of connections to current events.

We are welcoming students to class this fall either via a hybrid in-person/online learning model in NYC or via fully remote, synchronous online classes.
