11 th grade United States History, Mrs. Cooke, Room #813 Dear Students & Parents, 11 th grade United States History, Mrs. Cooke, Room #813 Dear Students & Parents, Welcome to 11 th grade Social Studies, US History! This is a two semester class that is required for high school graduation. Our units of study are based on the California State Standards and we use the American Vision: Modern Times book as our core curriculum. In this class, we will cover the foundations of American colonies, American Revolution and Civil War, the Constitution, US industrialization, US involvement in WWI and WWII, the Great Depression, the Roaring 20’s, Vietnam War , the Cold War, Red Scare, contemporary America, current events, and much more! Please allow me to introduce myself. I was born in San Diego, California where I have spent most of my free time playing sports and going to the beach. I moved to Riverside to attend the University of California, Riverside where I earned a basketball scholarship. I was a starting forward for the division one UCR women’s basketball team and we won two Big West Championships in the four years I was there. I earned my B. A. in history and my M. A. in education from UCR graduating with honors. This is my 6 th year teaching and my 4 th year at Bonita High School. If I was not a history teacher, I would have a career in sports journalism, but history is my passion and I love being a teacher because I get to work with awesome people every day and tell amazing stories! I look forward to a successful year! Please contact me anytime regarding this class, e-mail is best. Sincerely, Mrs. Cooke Email: j.
