May 2016: Please read the information on this month’s topics of study for my classes below.
U.S. History: We will continue our exploration of the reform movements of the 1970’s, and analyze their impact on current government and public policies. We will examine the presidencies of Reagan and Clinton and their effect on the nation. We will study the rise of the Conservative right and the Liberal left in American politics and their differing views of the role of government. We will also study the events of 9/11, and the continuing war on terror. The students will also be working on a Decade Project as their culminating activity for the course.
A.P. U.S. History- We will complete the 2 week review for the APUSH Exam on May 6th which will be in-depth and comprehensive. The students will also be working on a Decade Project as the final activity for the course.
We will have quizzes for each chapter on a weekly/bi-weekly basis, dependent upon chapter material. Please check Teacher Connection for weekly reading assignments and assessment dates.
I am available every day before and after school for help and review.
It has truly been a pleasure teaching your children this year. Have a wonderful summer!
