  • explain significant events covering a time span of at least 100 years of U.S. history, including the relationships of U.S. regions and relationships with foreign nations
  • analyze the roles of major ethnic and social groups in the significant events above, and the contexts in which those events have occurred
  • explain how these events illustrate both the continuity of “the American experience” and its derivation from other cultures by considering at least three of the following: politics, economics, social movements, and geography
