Moodle Champion: TBD

The purpose of this course is to provide instruction that enables students to strengthen their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing skills. Students will work on improving their critical thinking skills, determining meaning of informational and narrative text, increasing their vocabulary, and developing test-taking skills.

All students enrolled in any upper-level social studies course (American History, United States Government, Economics) will be working on this journal assignment.  Together we will be reading, analyzing, and paraphrasing each paragraph of an insightful artical detailing the origin, evolution, and future prospects of the idea of the American Dream.  As you develop a better appreciation of the historical significance of this evolving concept, it is my hope that you will begin to imagine how your generation will pursue and define your own concept of our nation's unending "pursuit of happiness . . ."
