I hope you will enjoy this class. We will be having lively,thought provoking class discussions and will be refining skills such as note taking, analyzing and collaborating which will prepare you for your future. Students are expected to come to class prepared and with an open mind. I challenge you to take responsibility for your learning. I also encourage you to use our Google Classroom Blog to ask your classmates and myself relevant Social Studies questions. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
