    Hello, I want to welcome all of you, students and parents, to Coach Corder's U.S. History and Government/Current Issues Classes.  The goal of the Social Studies curriculum here at McDonough High School is to develop informed Georgia citizens who understand the structure/purposes of government at the local, state, national and international levels as well as our place in an ever increasingly interconnected world. We also aspire to graduate students who have and understanding of and appreciation for our nation's history.  It is essential that students understand how these systems both function and impact their daily lives and future in addition to how out nation's history has formed us into the people we are today.  It is our goal to work diligently throughout this school year exploring the meanings of government, US History, and current issues in our lives and to gain deeper understanding as well as appreciation for who we are becoming as citizens.  I am excited about the opportunity to be a part of McDonough High School and I know we are headed for some great experiences this year in Warhawk Country.  When students win--we all win.
    Please feel free to email me at any time if you have questions, concerns, or simply want to say hello.  And remember, there may not be an "I" in team but there is in WIN!!!!!!
