Welcome to Eighth Grade Social Studies
I am looking forward to a great year with all of you in whatever capacity/conditions that we will be working with.
Although we are working differently this year, we will be just as dedicated to learning about our Country and how WE can all be informed and active citizens.
We will be learning about the past events in American history and linking those event to present day issues. Remember that this is an election year. We will be discussing government and the election as it unfolds.
We will be starting with the American Revolution and working our way towards The California Gold Rush.
Learning how we acquired all of the land in the United States and how we settled these area's.
