M- Step week 2 for 7th graders.  As a department, we worked hard to make the activities during M-step - informative, varied, creative and independent.  Please see tab:  Ancient Rome and more...for ideas on what we will do in class during M-step.  This week, under the same tab - we will be working with India - especially Gupta.    

Drama Class - what a nice group - Drama games continue -also, focus on improvisation. 

Drama Club DVDS will be handed out soon.  I will keep you posted.

         RDJ students- Our journeys have concluded!  Thank you for a great year.  You will receive your certificates and "coin" at the 7th grade awards night on May 19th.  If you can not make it, stop by after the 19th and I will give you your certificate.  I will talk to you later to see if you would like to help me put a presentation together for other 7th graders.  


           Overview of the year- 

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
Remember, look at "Think Like a Historian" for important  information like our student information.

Possible donations for the classroom: box of #2 pencils, kleenex-especially the tall square ones, little bathroom dixie cups-(very important), glue sticks and bags of candy for treats-jolly ranchers are a big favorite - paper towels are handy too.  Remember, at this time we could really use kitchen or bathroom size Dixie cups.  Students love to get drinks!

See school web site for school wide events.

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 2014-15 school year! I also enjoy taking pictures, being involved with the Religious Diversity Journey Group for 7th graders, sponsoring the Drama Club, shopping, movies, and  working out (especially Zumba and Yoga) 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 is an assistant superintendent for Swartz Creek Schools. Our only child, Matthew (former CHS graduate),  graduated from CMU a year ago with his mater's degree and is currently living in Waterford and working in Clarkson for Independence TV.
