Hello and welcome to Mr. Gunter's website! This year, I'll be teaching US History and AP US History. This is my fourth year teaching at Peaster High School. Prior to this, I had been teaching in Comanche ISD for two years.
US History is a fascinating subject. We will be picking up where the 8th grade US History class left off, 1877. After Reconstruction, we will be exploring how the United States became the world power we know today. We will be exploring the Gilded Age, the Progressive Movement, World War 1, the Roaring 20's, the Great Depression, World War 2, the Cold War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and much more. This subject is STAAR tested, and as such, will be a very rigorous discipline.
AP US History is a robust subject that covers the whole range of American history. Additionally, we will practice writing skills, argumentation, and research. These skills will be the key to success on the AP test.
