Social Studies 8
Welcome to 8th grade Social Studies!
I am excited to get to know all of you and take you through the creation of our amazing nation. The goal of our 8th grade social studies course is for each student to deepen knowledge about our nation in order to develop into a responsible, conscientious, knowledgeable, respectful, and confident citizen.
We use a textbook called Creating America as well as an online textbook from the Open Book Project. Both texts are available electronically. We also use Google Classroom a lot in eight grade social studies. Most of our work will be completed electronically. In addition, students see feedback electronically too. There are many important documents and tools on Google Classroom for students. If possible, students are encouraged to show their parents/ guardians how Google Classroom works.
For more information about this course, see the attached syllabus.
