Honors U.S. History 10A & 10B
Sophomore Honors U. S. History is course designed to prepare the student for the rigor and accelerated pace of Advanced Placement Social Science courses. Through the examination of American History from the Age of Exploration through Reconstruction you will practice the historical method and develop skills of individual inquiry, writing and time management. Throughout the year we will be examining the causes and effects of the developing nation. You will learn to analyze visual documents like maps, political cartoons, graphs and charts. You will become acquainted with the historical figures whose influence shaped the nation. You will be able to articulate the political and economic philosophies of historical figures through quotes, class study, exams and writing assignments. The skills you will acquire during this course are transferable to any course of study at the honors or Advanced Placement level.
Latin IA & IB
This is the entry level course for the Latin language. More than 65 percent of our English vocabulary is derived from Latin words. Learning Latin builds a larger English vocabulary--an important asset. We will cover the first third of Latin grammar and morphology.
There are elements in our American heritage that are distinctively Roman. It is not sufficient to simply recognize them; we must understand their value and contribution to western civilization and its ongoing development. Latin studies will highlight significant Roman achievements, their value today, and how they affect us intellectually, artistically, architecturally, militarily and politically.
Latin IIA & IIB
The second year of Latin study will complete the noun declensions, comparison of adjectives, pronouns and attack the more complex grammatical elements of the Latin language. Historically, during first semester we will explore the monarchial period and the early Republic. The study of Roman religous practices and the mythology embraced by the ancients will take us in the new year. Our study will then focus on the social, political and military shifts from monarchy to Republic and from Republic to Empire.
Latin IIIA & IIIB - Concurrent Credit
This is a yearlong course of intensive Latin designed to provide the high school student with a basic reading of the forms and variety of ancient Roman literature. In the first semester, the basic vocabulary, grammar and simple syntax of the language are studied, and authors of the Roman republican period are surveyed with illustrative reading passages excerpted from the ancient writings. In the second semester, the advanced grammatical forms and complex syntax of the language are studied, and authors of the Roman imperial age are surveyed with translations of extended historical and literary texts undertaken. The syllabus for second semester will be provided to you in January.
This course is the equivalent of BSU’s two semester-long Latin Literature courses, LA 211 and LA 212. If you paid to participant as a BSU student, the successful completion of both semesters will result in 8 earned credits of foreign language.
U.S. History 10A & 10B
This sophomore U.S. history course will focus on the discovery, exploration, settlement and national development of the United States. Emphasis will be placed on the social, cultural, political and economic growth of the U.S. up to the year 1877, which marks the end of Reconstruction after the Civil War.
