    In grade 8, students study the history of the United States from the age of exploration and
    colonization to the end of Reconstruction in 1877. This course allows students to take a closer look at a
    particular segment of history and gives them a different perspective than other social studies courses.
    Students will examine the full scope of Early American history including the American Revolution and
    writing of the Constitution, the early Republic and the Age of Jackson, Westward Expansion, and the
    rise of sectionalism before the course culminates with the Civil War and Reconstruction. We will also
    examine the Rights and Responsibilities as Citizens as laid out by the U.S. Constitution at the end of the
    school year. Course instruction is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) which
    include the following concepts as they relate to United States history: geography, economies,
    government, citizenship, culture, science, technology, and society. This course will focus on teaching
    students reading comprehension, critical thinking, problem solving, and analytical skills. -TEA
