American Studies

The American character did not spring full-blown from the Mayflower," but "it came out of the forests and gained new strength each time it touched a frontier. ~Frederick Jackson Turner - "The Significance of the Frontier in American History"

 

Utilizing the 11th Grade American Studies classroom, fulfilling the mission of character and leadership development at Culver Academies has taken a new approach. Revised curriculum is allowing juniors the opportunity to develop practical leadership skills by analyzing character strengths and literary analysis of figures in American Literature and American History. Primary text focus will be on The Killer Angels but will also include such literary classics as The Crucible, The Great Gatsby, and The Catcher in the Rye. The lessons develop the aspects of character strengths, close reading of texts, leadership aspects, and the application of the knowledge and skills acquired from the material to create real life leadership experiences for students.
