About Cooper 8 Social Studies
This year's course is the second year of a 2-year sequence in American history. Course content includes Reconstruction, industrialization during the Gilded Age, the U.S in the Age of Imperialism, World War I, the Roaring 20s, the Great Depression, World War II, the Cold War and the Civil Rights Movement. We also will study America's role in the world today through current events. With support from the district-wide Lincoln Center program, we will make connections to the arts in our curriculum.
