Welcome back to a new and exciting year in History and Social Sciences.  We have a new name and curriculum and I am looking forward to sharing it with my classes.  It will be a year full of projects, Assured Experiences and DBQs (Document Based Questions).  We also watch the CNN Student News daily.  This keeps the students up-to-date on what is going on in the world around them. On Fridays, all students are to complete the Quiz for the week as a homework/project grade.

I am happy to say that we did get new books! Every student will also receive a workbook that will be used for homework reinforcement of the days lessons.  Students must cover their hard covered books. The book will be used in conjunction with our Assured Experiences and DBQ's!

My homework page is updated daily. Homework is given Monday-Thursday with the CNN Student News Quiz to be given on Fridays.

Also, feel free to e-mail me with any questions or concerns that you might have.
