Description Breakdown:
The course will look at two different aspects of modern world history. Unit one considers the development of the USA from 1890 to 1945; social, political and economic themes will be explored, many of which build upon the topics found in GCSE Modern World History. Unit two continues the theme and focuses on the struggle to achieve Civil Rights in the USA, especially the social and economic position of black citizens, as well as an exploration of Martin Luther King's methods in comparison to those of the Black Power movement. Reading and research will allow students to bring historical information to the group and their own work. The evaluation of Historical sources is an integral part of the course.
