Welcome to Mr. Curry's 8th Grade US History Class.

     This class will be a  an intensive study of US History/Social Studies.  Students will be challenged to work at a high level.  We integrate technology and collaborative learning activities throughout the curriculum.  Parents will receive constant communication from the teacher and Mr. Curry will gladly respond to your phone calls and emais promptly.

 

     As a real essential part of this class, students will be challenged to submit their assignments, take tests and create presentations using technology.   We provide parents and students alike with online access to their Gradebook , as well as an online version of the Weekly Assignment sheet.  The students will also take quizes and tests online at www.Mygradebook.com.   I spent this past summer creating a secured web portal at Moodle (http://www.teachersclasses.com/tcrc/index.php) to support students who need additional  assistance and for the independent workers who are ready to accelerate their learning.  Integrating technology will provide students with the skills needed for 21st century learning and future jobs.

     Those students without access to the internet at home will have priority in using the numerous classroom computers I have obtained for the class.  We will also make printed copies of grade updates and assignment sheets for all students needing them.


We encourage you to visit our Parent's Page for more details.
