While some of you may not continue your study of history after high school, you will develop skills from taking history courses that will help you later in life.  Skills that you will acquire from this class are the ability to:


- make inferences              

- develop historical perspective     

- distinguish fact from opinion    

- analyze cause and effect  

- formulate historical questions     

- hypothesize

- recognize bias                 

- analyze issues                         

- form opinions

- draw conclusions             

- form generalizations                  

- use primary sources

- interpret maps, charts, graphs

"The students may not remember every fact, or date, or detail that you teach them. But they will remember how you made them feel about history"
Hello! My name is Mr. Maroney. I believe each student is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking and invites a sharing of ideas.
We will follow the NY State Common Core Standards curriculum. The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.  If you are interested in learning more about the NY State Common Core standards, please click on the following link: ENGAGE NY

I am looking forward to a successful 2013-2014 school year!
