Social Studies Week 8/9

columbusOverview

This week we will talk about all of the parties that come together to commit acts of history. How do we “do history?” We continue to discuss the question, “how does perspective affect how history is written, studied and interpreted?” We then begin our review of the American revolution and get into our timeline review. Keep checking back as we approach our studies of America’s involvement in global conflicts, and make sure to visit frequently if you are looking for the daily resources we use in class.
