It is with great anticipation I look forward to working with you for the 2017-2018 school year. American History and Government promises to be an exciting and valuable experience. Over the course of the first two weeks, we will predominantly study the Declaration of Independence. For the remainder of the 1st quarter and into the second, we will be studying the United States Constitution and why/how it has withstood the test of time since 1787. The state mandated Constitution test will be around the 10th-11th week of school. From that point, we will begin an exciting journey of studying post-Civil War American History. Please contact me with any questions regarding content, timelines, or the progress of your student.
