Greetings, Students and Parents! My name is Sergio Smal, and I would like to welcome you to 8th Grade US History at Four Points Middle School. 
    The 8th grade year is a study of the critical events, issues, and individuals in United States History prior to 1880. It begins with a selective review of the Age of Exploration, the colonial period and the American Revolution. The major focus of the year is the development of the Constitution, the impact of the Westward Movement, and the struggles of the Civil War and Reconstruction. All units include an examination of the impact of economics, politics, and social history on the development of the United States. 
    I am very excited to be part of the Falcon faculty this year: please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions, or simply to say hi!
