This session will provide a thematic approach to address the content and inquiry-based form of instruction in U.S. history courses.  The session content material applies primarily to grades 8, 11, and 12.  The thematic approach introduced in the first phrase of the Framework conference that highlighted the enduring themes of citizenship, movement, and historical perspectives will serve as a foundation for this deeper exploration of the themes.  The session will focus more heavily on introducing the themes in the first and last units in the U.S. history grade level courses.  Examples that focus on recent history will also guide discussions of the thematic approach.  Participants will receive 2-4 inquiry sets that address this content.
