In this class, we will study New Mexico history from 11,000 B.C. to 1912 statehood!  Some topics we will explore include: geography’s impact on culture, early Indian tribes of New Mexico, Spanish exploration, cowboys and outlaws in territorial New Mexico, and the long path to statehood.

 By the end of the year, each student will meet the learning goals listed below:

History~ Students are able to identify important people and events in order to analyze significant patterns, relationships, themes, ideas, beliefs, and turning points in New Mexico, United States, and world history in order to understand the complexity of the human experience.

Geography ~ Students understand how physical, natural, and cultural processes influence where people live, the ways in which people live, and how societies interact with one another and their environment.

Government and Civics ~ Students understand the ideals, rights, and responsibilities of citizenship and understand the content and history of the founding documents of the United States with particular emphasis on the United States and New Mexico constitutions and how governments function at local, state, tribal, and national levels.
