This course is a full year of history curriculum covering US History from AD 1000 to the present.  The text book we will be using is America the Beautiful by Notgrass.  There will be weekly lessons, assignments, and of course optional Minecraft activities to go along with it.  We will be using the literature portion of this class and the books will be assigned reading along the way. This class was a live class for the 2017-18 school year but can be now used as a self-paced history class.

Students will earn badges as they complete quizzes and a Diamond Armor badge when they complete the whole class.
