Welcome students and parents to World/ U.S. History and Geography!
I care deeply about making history come alive in our classroom. I want us to become engaged in the lives and events of those who have come before us. Winston Churchill said, "The farther backward you look, the farther forward you are likely to see. "The goal of this course will be for each of you not only to learn this era of history in detail, but to understand how patterns and events in history have led us to how we see the world today. I have a passion for all students to succeed. In our classroom being successful is defined as doing your best and striving to do better each day! If you ever have questions please don't be afraid to ask.
We will use an online tool called EDMODO to keep up with our assignments and class dialogue this year. We have a different page for each class. It is very similar to Facebook but is used entirely for educational purposes. We will sign up together the first week of class and I will send instructions home if you would like to sign up as a parent as well.
Thank you in advance for being involved! Please do not hesitate to communicate with me.
