Mr Wennerlind's Texas History


Welcome to my Texas History Classroom! I'm from Midland, Texas, and I'm entering my seventh year teaching Texas History. I'm so excited to have your student in my class!

This year we will explore the history of our great state while discussing the big ideas and individuals which helped shape our past, present, and future. We will also dive into current events while connecting them to the past. My goal is to help your child become an independent, responsible, critically thinking member of society by providing a variety of collaborative classroom discussions, mini-projects, creative approaches, and meaningful experiences. I want our classroom to be a safe place to enjoy learning about history, our world, and ourselves. By the end of this year, I want your child to have a fundamental foundation of history, prepared and feeling confident about entering the eighth grade.

I expect my students to be accountable for themselves by independently checking their own grades, while learning to independently communicate with me during class, tutorials, or through email for any assistance :) I want to be available for your student and help them become the best person they can be.

Let's make this a great year together!
