EDMODO CLASSROOM and Web 2.0 tools
Hello, and welcome to Mr. Miller's Social Studies class! I am looking forward to working with all of you this year, watching you grow as students and life long learners, and preparing you for the next step in your educational lives, high school. We will take the events from the past and connect them to the present, showing how history has evolved over time. Below you will find the daily materials needed for my class, my grading policy, as well as the online textbook information. Above and on the right (Homework Calendar) will be a list of daily homework assignments and explanations for each task. Also, my email address can be found on the top right of the page. Feel free to contact me with questions, comments, and/or concerns at any point.
