       World History and Drama 

             Hello new students!  Welcome to the everything included web site. 

** History students, feel free to glance at the left for a peak at the first unit. 

As the school year begins, I will add important materials and tweak "Think Like 

 Historian" for the current school year. In the tab for this first unit is the

welcome letter with specifics about our class as well as other important

 information. 

**If you click World History, you will see a movie I made last year - it's still a

 current representation of our class highlights!  

**If you click World History Agenda, you will see how we will start our year. 

 That is the place to go for our weekly agendas.

**Composition Notebook Prompts is the future home of well, our composition note

book prompts.  We will do these on a regular basis.  Make sure you get your  

composition notebook for our first full week of school (no spirals please).

          World History Overview:  

World History: we will be studying the ancient world and geography with a focus on historical thinking.  Students will learn about:

  • early humans as hunter-gatherers
  • the migration and settlement of people
  • the emergence of pastoral and agrarian societies
  • the rise and fall of powerful empires
  • world religions
  • trade and the diffusion of ideas and cultures
Religious Diversity Journey will also be offered this year - details to follow. 

        Drama Class Students: 

        Look at the tab on the left to get some basic ideas about what our class will be like - As our group develops- activities, games and more will be changed and added. Hopefully, the information provided will give you some ideas.   Be prepared to be open minded, active and participate - you will have a lot of fun!

Drama club will begin towards the end of September - 
See Drama Club tab on the left.

In case you want to know a little more about me:  I have been with Clarkston Community Schools for a number of years.  I have been  a teacher at all levels and have been a counselor at the secondary level.  Although I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my different positions, my favorite is right where I am at -SMS. I look forward to the beginning of each school year; I am really excited to  begin the 2015-16 school year! I also enjoy taking pictures, being involved with the Religious Diversity Journey Group for 7th graders, sponsoring the Drama Club, and working out.  I am certified in Zumba and Zumba Gold and am currently completing my RYT 200 Yoga training.   Educationally,  I attended CMU for a year, however I graduated with a Bachelor of Science and a Master's degree in Teaching from Oakland University.  My husband Jim has currently retired from his position as an assistant superintendent for Swartz Creek Schools. Our only child, Matthew (former CHS graduate),  graduated from CMU a couple years ago with his mater's degree and is currently living in Waterford and working in Clarkson for Independence TV.
