7th Grade Social Studies
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year, and welcome to my Social Studies 7 class. This year, we will be focusing on improving reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills as we study US History. We will also learn important study skills to help you achieve success. Get ready to work, and also get ready for Bell Ringers, Vocabulary Alive, Independence Day, SPAM, a Historical Fashion Show, Brain Teasers, and so much more! You will work hard and be challenged, but I think you will be surprised at how much fun you will have while learning.
