Welcome to 8th Grade Social Studies with Ms. Watson! I am looking forward to a great year with you as we adventure together through the world of Georgia History. This year we will learn about State Government, Geography, how Georgia got its start, what makes Georgia unique, different wars and how Georgia contributed in each, and so much more. You will learn more about the state you live in than you ever thought possible. However, in this class you are going to learn more than just dates and names. My goal for each of my students this year is to learn how to read historical texts, how to have meaningful discussions, how to respectfully disagree with others and share your own opinions, and how to be successful in the years to come as you head to high school and beyond! We are going to have a GREAT year and we are going to work hard and learn a lot. Be open to the adventure!
