Description:

Welcome to 9th Grade Social Studies! This year, we will be studying the second half of American history. By analyzing the many changes that America went through from the end of the Civil War to now, students will develop a better understanding of America today and our global economy. It is my goal to build the students’ critical thinking skills through engaging activities that include group work, independent work, and full class discussions. We will employ technology in and out of our classroom, relying upon the mass of information available online to create an interactive and compelling learning environment. I look forward to working with you this year, and I hope that, together, we can make learning history enjoyable!
