"Kids don't remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are.” ―
Welcome to Eagles Landing Middle School for the 2019-2020 School Year!
I am very excited to be working with ELMS along with getting to meet each and every one of you!
Let's start this school year off strong and proud! GO EAGLES!
OPEN HOUSE IS TUESDAY, JULY 30TH FROM 3-5PM SO PLEASE KEEP THAT IN MIND.
My classroom is on the 6th Grade Hall (first hall on the right when you take a left out of the front lobby) and my classroom Number is #701 (First door on the right).
About the class:
6th Grade Social Studies in Georgia consist of teaching about Europe, Latin America, The Caribbean, Canada, and Australia.
It is the first part of a two-year World Studies course where Middle School Students are to become familiar with the world that they live in.
This consist of teaching Students about Geography (Physical & Human), Government/Civics, Economics, and History based on the countries listed above.
The intent of teaching this content is for students to:
1) Begin to understand the importance of Geography in their daily lives,
2) Begin to understand the variety of Governments in the world,
3) Build upon students prior knowledge of Economics but shift the focus from the U.S. to other countires, and
4) how major historical events during the 20th and 21st century of each region have shaped the world as we know it today.
We will begin with discussing Europe, move onto Latin America and the Caribbean, then to Canada, and finally ending with Australia.
Throughout the year, we shall be learning about these various aspects in each country through engaging activites, reading articles, watching videos, lectures, etc.
I understand that every child learns in their own way requiring different forms of instruction therefore I try to differentiate my instruction to the best of my ability.
School is meant for learning but if you aren't having fun and engaging with the lesson, are you really learning?
I integrate that ideology into my lessons therefore hopefully making them engaging and relevant to my students.
If you have any other questions about the class, please feel free to ask!
