Welcome to the 2018 -2019 school year!

This year I will be teaching both ancient civilizations in 6th grade social studies and U.S. History from the late nineteenth century to present time in 8th grade. In both classes we will explore these time periods through various perspectives and a critical analysis of primary sources and problem-based learning experiences. As we study events, the focus will be on higher level thinking and student ownership of learning, with an emphasis on critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. I am looking forward to our journey together!

***Please note that all assignments will be posted on Google Classroom, as well as on the 6th and 8th grade team websites and on the classroom board. Google Classroom will have many more details, as well as any pdf's and links for assignments so be sure to check there daily. You must be logged in to your student account to access Google Classroom.  Click on "Stream" to see all assignments. You may turn in all assignments electronically via Google Classroom, Google Drive, or email. Paper is also acceptable. You can also access many helpful resources and links in the "About" section of Google Classroom including links and passwords for our HMS Online Resources.
