Edison Advisement Conference Schedule

 

 

Dear Parent/Guardian:

         

In 2013 our Texas Legislature passed House Bill 5 (HB 5) changing the graduation requirements for students entering the ninth grade in 2014 - 2015.  Beginning in the 2014 - 2015 school year, school districts must ensure that each student, on entering ninth grade, indicates in writing an endorsement that the student intends to earn.  As per state mandate, high school counselors are to review the Personal Graduation Plan and endorsement together with the parent and each student entering 9th grade.  The Personal Graduation Plan must be signed by the student and parent.  Below is the Advisement Conference Schedule of date and time of your scheduled conference during the week of August 11 - 14.  It is imperative that you and your child attend at the designated time indicated below based on your child's last name.

US History PDF Print

In United States History, which is the second part of a two-year study that begins in grade 8, students study the period from Reconstruction to the present.  Historical content focuses on political, economic, and social events and issues related to industrialization and urbanization, major wars, domestic and foreign policies of the Cold War and post-Cold War eras, and reform movements including civil rights.  Students examine the impact of geographic factors on major events and analyze causes and effects of the Great Depression.  Students examine the impact of constitutional issues on American society, evaluate the dynamic relationship of the three branches of the federal government, and analyze efforts to expand the democratic process.  Students describe the relationship between the arts and the times during which they were created.  Students analyze the impact of technological innovations on the American labor movement.  Students use critical thinking skills to explain and apply different methods that historians use to interpret the past, including points of view and historical context.

 Teachers will incorporate a variety of historical sources into their classroom instruction, including biographies and autobiographies; landmark cases of the Supreme Court; novels; speeches, letters, and diaries; and poetry, songs, and artworks.  Selections may include a biography of Theodore Roosevelt, Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, and Martin Luther King's letter from the Birmingham City Jail.  Motivating resources are also available from museums, historical sites, presidential libraries, and local and state preservation societies.
