AMERICAN HISTORY

CIVICS

Ages 14 - 16

4:00 - 5:15

Christianity, Judaism, Islam – these religions have had a large effect on American culture.  Americans are proud to have no state religion, yet so many of us pledge allegiance to “one nation, under God.” We define ourselves sometimes by a particular religion, sometimes against another religion, and sometimes by founding our very own religion! The US also has a history of atheism, alongside a fear of atheists, especially during the Cold War. We’ll investigate various religious movements that have affected American history, including evangelical Christianity, Ethical Culture, the Society of Friends, and the Nation of Islam. We'll spend a little time discussing current events and civics as well.

This class will be offered online and on site when we return to DD campus.
