Course Description

Welcome to U.S. History with Mr. Polish! Our class will meet every Tuesday from 8 – 9:15 am and your attendance there is required. Because we only meet one day a week, it is important that you maintain communication with me by e-mail if you are having any issues with me, school, or the work. My e-mail is and I check it every day so expect me to get back to you no more than 24 hours after you have messaged me.

The Progressive Era Essay Test

Were oppressed people able to make progress toward equality during the Progressive Era?

In your essay, make sure you talk about all the groups we have studied -- people of color (African Americans and Native Americans), white women, and immigrants – and the struggles they faced in their attempts to achieve full citizenship in the U.S.

This entire essay will be written in class without notes on the day of your class final. However, since this is your first essay test, you will be allowed to bring a pre-written introduction.
