U.S. History

by David Lovell, edited and
updated by George Cassutto


Contemporary U.S. History covers the period following World War II to 2016 in a one-semester course. This course includes an easy-to use pacing guide that ensures coverage of all applicable national and state standards. Based on a traditional lecture approach, these course materials have colorful PowerPoint slides that support classroom discussion and ensure student engagement. The daily lesson plans include substantial content background for the teacher covering each day’s lecture assignment, reducing teacher preparation time. Woven through the course are innovative original reading and writing assignments that challenge students to combine both their increasing history knowledge with effective essay writing skills. Frequent quizzes help students master hundreds of vocabulary terms; course materials include chapter tests and two versions of a final exam.
