Eighth Grade American History will focus on the study of American History, Government, Economics, Geography, and Culture from 1607 to 1877.
In the following pages you will find web sites that will help the students with their lessons and with preparing for their Grade 8 Social Studies STAAR test.
There is a page where you will find some personal history on me, where I come from, where I attended school, and what my teaching history is.
Of particular help for students will be the Instructional Resources page. Here the students will find material specific to the content currently being covered and also preparation material for help on the CBA tests and benchmark test.
I have a blog page with material posted regarding content connected to learning objectives, topics of study, and material being covered. I hope that you will post constructive feedback on these topics.
You will also find a page that displays student work which showcases topics being covered and examples of the good job students are doing.
