Today is built on yesterday.
To understand the present and build the future,
we must know the past.

  • STUDENTS MUST HAVE THEIR AGENDAS WITH THEM EVERY DAY AT SCHOOL.   ASSIGNMENTS AND REMINDERS SHOULD BE NOTED IN THEIR AGENDAS.  THEY ALSO SERVE AS A COMMUNICATION TOOL FOR TEACHERS AND PARENTS.
  • STUDENTS SHOULD ALL HAVE A THREE RING BINDER FOR SOCIAL STUDIES HANDOUTS (WORKPAGES, PUZZLES, AND STUDY GUIDES).
  • STUDENTS SHOULD KEEP THE TEXT BOOKS ISSUED TO THEM AT HOME.  THIS MAKES IT ALWAYS AVAILABLE.  A CLASSROOM SET IS AVAILABLE AT SCHOOL.

Students should always concentrate on the handouts they receive in class to best prepare for our tests. The handouts & worksheets are the study guides for the material on tests.
 
Extra credit work is welcomed for helping students boost their grade averages.  See me for authorization before beginning any extra credit project.  All assignments must be turned in before extra credit work will be accepted. 

Just one of many examples of how history shapes the present...........
 
   Solid fuel rocket boosters for NASA's space shuttles can't be made larger in size because of the limits in size for goods transported by railway.  Why are railroads built the width they are?
   Railroads widths are a reflection of the grooves made by the wheels of imperial Roman chariots in the ancient roads of southern Britain when it was controlled by the Romans.   America's early railways were designed by Englishmen that duplicated the system used in their homeland.  

  RULES OF GOOD WRITING:  Learn these rules and practice them.  These rules are very important whenever one writes and consistant practice will improve your State Writing Assessment Test performance.  (The Writing Assessment Test  will be given to seventh graders in the Spring.)

When writing an essay or answering a discussion question, remember to follow these rules:
1) INDENT THE FIRST SENTENCE OF EVERY PARAGRAPH;
2) CAPITALIZE THE FIRST WORD OF EVERY SENTENCE;
3) USE COMPLETE SENTENCES WITH A SUBJECT AND A VERB THAT AGREE;
4) ALWAYS HAVE PUNCTUATION AT THE END OF EVERY SENTENCE;
5) WRITE NEATLY AND WATCH YOUR SPELLING;
6) DON'T USE 'YOU' IN YOUR SENTENCES.
