Welcome to 8th Grade Social Studies!
8th Grade Social Studies is focused on US History from pre-colonization to the 21st century. The class also includes NC geography and financial literacy. Our class explores the identity & role of the US, and how it has evolved throughout its history.
Essentially, my teaching style and philosophy is that we're all in this together- exploring, learning, growing and improving together as a class, and as a school. Skills that are emphasized include peer collaboration, independent-thinking, and articulating clear & cohesive ideas (through speaking and writing practice).
I look forward to working with your child this upcoming semester.
