HST 260 – U.S.History, First Encounters to the Present (4 hours; 4 credits) Abbreviated Course Description: A one-semester survey of United States History. While designed to contribute to the liberal arts general education of CSI students and to the training of history majors, the course will be especially valuable to students intending careers as elementary and middle school social studies teachers, since it is based on the content and skills required of elementary and middle school social studies teachers in New York City and State.
Adjunct would be expected to adopt a standard syllabus and suggested readings, teaching one of a number of sections of the same course.
