Welcome to Mr. Forsyth's Web Page

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to my class! I am looking forward to an exciting year full of fun and chances to explore new topics. During the course of this year we will be exploring a variety of topics including current events, politics,physical/political geography, the Middle Ages, Islam, China, Japan, and more. This year will be challenging and demanding for students as they learn to assess the world around them and its rich history. I believe that students cannot understand the world in which they live if they do not understand what happened in the past to help shape it. For example, we will not only be learning about Islam during the Middle Ages but we will also be exploring how it impacts today's world as well. I hope that you are as excited as I am to begin our journey together. I am looking forward to seeing you September.
