This year in Social Studies we will cover the topics of the Civil War, Reconstruction, the Gilded Age, Imperialism, World War One, the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression. Students are expected to use an interactive notebook to keep track of and study the content that is covered. Tests and quizzes are frequently used to assess knowledge of the state standards, in addition to, class work and homework.
I am in my 5th year at HJHS and have loved every minute of it! Although I'm a Californian at heart, I am grateful to have the warm welcome, sometimes literally, of my adoptive state. I truly believe the learning about the past will help shape our future, not only as a state and nation, but individually.
