Hearne’s Expectations
U.S. History

Class Description: This Social Studies class is the second half of American History taken by each
student in the State of Texas. The class focuses on the history of the United States from Reconstruction
(1877) to present day. The study of American history is not just the memorization of important battles and
dates. Rather it is the study of the struggles, pain, and promise of a great nation and how it dealt with
adversity. History ultimately shapes the world we live in, and we cannot separate ourselves from our
history. As Faulkner said, “You must always know the past for there is no real was, but only is.” History is
who we were, it is who we are, and it is who we will become.
