Mrs. Stranges 8th Grade American History & 6th Grade World Cultures
Welcome to 6th Grade World Cultures & 8th Grade American History! This course will be challenging, exciting, fast-paced, and above all else thought provoking! I have high expectations of excellence for my students and I know they will exceed them! History is definitely NOT a boring collection of names, dates, and places but is the ultimate story of US--of who we are and where we are going. It is the story of what humans are capable of accomplishing and demolishing. It is the stuff of legend. It is OUR STORY!
We will employ a large variety of educational methods and technology including primary sources, projects, research, communication, creative thinking, and analyzing how everything is connected.
