MS Washington State History (hannah)

Note: This class is open to middle school students only.

How did Washington’s unique location and natural resources influence its development, demographics, and interactions between people and environment? In this class, we will trace our beautiful state’s history through time. Students will examine the struggles to control territory in the Pacific Northwest, including the conflicts and treaties surrounding indigenous sovereignty. We will look at how Washington became an agricultural and technological center of industry. Students will practice skills of historical analysis to examine the interconnected strands of history, culture, geography, government, and economics. 

We will be using curriculum from the UW Center for the Study of the Pacific Northwest and Department of History; Washington State Historical Society; and the text Washington’s History; The People, Land, and Events of the Far Northwest by Harry Ritter
