Welcome back to VCMS!
I hope everyone had a fun & relaxing summer!
This month we will begin by looking at the various sources
historians must use in order to know what happened in the past. Our look into American History begins
thousands of years ago with the first human beings who arrived in the
Americas. We will proceed from these
original inhabitants to the first European settlers (you might be surprised to
learn that Christopher Columbus was not the first European settler to
“discover” North America).
Washington D.C. Trip
Details about the 2015 8th Grade Trip to Washington D.C. can be found on the Field Trips Page. This year we are adding an optional 1 day extension to tour Williamsburg, Jamestown, & Yorktown. Please see the field trip page for more details about this trip.
This page will be your one-stop shop for all information related to American History. On this page, you will be able to find the class syllabus and information regarding assignments/homework/projects. I will update this page on a regular basis, so I encourage you to check this page frequently. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding this course.
