• Welcome to 8th Grade Social Studies with Mrs. Graser!

    My expectations of students, which they may also expect of me, are as follows:

    • Be respectful to yourself and others.

    • Be prepared for class every day.

    • Complete all your work to the best of your ability. 

    • Ask questions, because the only “wrong” question is the one that isn’t asked.

    • Participate!

    Students will need the following items in class each day:

    • A pen or pencil

    • A highlighter

    • A few colored pencils

    • Aplanner

    • A 3-ring binder with lined paper and 4 dividers

    • A fully charged Chromebook

    We will be learning about American history from the American Revolution through the Civil War in the mid-1800’s.  Marking period grades will be based on 20% for class participation, 30% for homework, and 50% for assessments. If a student is absent, they are responsible for missed work. On the day they return to school, they refer to the “Things You Missed While Avoiding Grade 8 Social Studies” binder on the back table. Online work will be posted in our Google Classroom and I will always answer questions that are emailed to me.

    I am looking forward to a great semester of learning together!
