|HIST-221||The United States to 1860/SURVEY History of the United States||3 - credits||$318.06|
HIST 221 introduces students to the historical development of the United States of America. It presents the United States' signpost events, its key individuals, and its significant places; the "facts" of American history, providing students with a working knowledge of the nation's past. Through associated textbook interpretations of these factors, HIST 221 examines the perceptions placed upon this history by historians within the USA and outside it. This examination of American historiography allows students both to discover how historians are affected by their perspective and how they process information into viable explanations of the past. Students should also become more proficient in historical skills, discovering how to plan and lead a seminar discussion and how to research and develop an annotated bibliography, thesis statement, and history essay.
