8th Grade Social Studies (American History: Civil War - Progressive Era)
In this class we will study the differences of culture and lifestyle that developed between the North and the South. We will learn how these differences caused conflict and ultimately the Civil War. We will also learn how the increase of technology helped speed up the settling of the West. We will also study about Abraham Lincoln, Stephen Douglass, Harriet Tubman, the Emancipation Proclamation, Frederick Douglass, Theodore Roosevelt, and many other people, events, and ideas that helped shape the United States of America.
