About Our Class

I look forward to a productive and eventful year with all of you.  This year in social studies we will be discovering the history of our nation beginning with the Age of Exploration and concluding with the Civil War.  In order to stay as updated as possible concerning what exciting historical and current events are being analyzed in class, please visit my page regularly.  Homework assignments will be posted on the Google Classroom calendar corresponding with your student's class period.

*Students should bring headphones with them to class on a daily basis.*  The grading requirements for Social Studies are as follows.

45 % - Assessments: minimum 3 per marking period

35 % - Applications: minimum 3 per marking period

10 % - Project-Based Assessment : 1 per marking period

5 % - Independent Practice: homework

5 % - Achieve 3000 : 2 per month

The parent portal (Genesis) will be updated regularly.

My goal for this page is not to just keep parents and/or guardians updated on the class' progress, but also as a learning tool and resource for the students.  Extra help is available on specific days during the students' lunch period. Students must bring their lunch and report directly to the extra help location if they are in need of extra help.  *Any student seeking extra help should avoid bringing peanut butter or any nut related meals/snacks to the classroom as many students have serious allergies.*
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me directly through email at and I will respond as soon as possible. With everyone's help, this can be an outstanding year for all involved!
