By the end of this, the last unit of Year 4, we will arrive at present-day events! This unit covers essentially the last quarter of the twentieth century and the first ten years of the twenty-first. We use the terms of the American presidents of this period as our organizing principle, covering the administrations of Nixon through Obama (just his first year). As always, younger students will enjoy the lighter side of historical studies, while older ones will grapple with the heavier issues of these times. It is exciting to many students to complete a full rotation of the study of human history, so this should be a rewarding unit for many.
