Georgia Studies

Assessment Calendar


DAily Schedule


Class Information: Mr. Kirk and Mrs. Williams

  • Georgia Studies is comprised of material on the History, Geography, Government, and Economics of our state. Throughout the year we will study many units that touch on these topics.
  • Students will need a composition book for class. These will be used to make Interactive Student Notebooks (ISN) for the year. These will be kept in class, however, students may take these home to study for assessments.
  • Students may utilize and download the GPB App on any of thier devices to use a resource to the class. Additionally, we have sets of streams that we use in class that students may use to go to the GPB Education Website.
  • Grading: Each Nine Weeks we will have 4-5 Summative Assessments that will count for 80% of the grade. Additionally we will have 6- Formative Assessments that will count for 20% of the Grade. Summative Assessments can replace Formative Assessment grades. Students may reassess on Summative assignments provided that they come in for additional help from Mr. Kirk or Mrs. Williams. (*Nine Weeks Exams cannot be retaken.)
