U.S. History and Government 11 Regents
Grade 11 begins with the colonial and constitutional foundations of the United States and explores the government structure and functions provided in the Constitution. The development of the nation and the political, social and economic factors that led to the challenges our nation faced in the Civil War are addressed. Industrialization, urbanization, and the accompanying problems are examined, along with America’s emergence as a world power, the two world wars of the 20th century and the Cold War. Students explore the expansion of the federal government, evolving social beliefs and behaviors, and the nation’s place in an increasingly globalized and interconnected world. Students are required to take the New York State Regents Exam in United States History and Government in June.
