A Special Note for Remote Learning:
Students will be able to access their work through Schoology in a manner very similar to our usual habits, and reflected by the instructions given below.

I will be posting important information about what students can expect through our "Updates". You should direct your students here for information, as detailed instructions about our remote learning plan and expectations have been shared in this way.

Students who have questions or concerns can most easily get in contact through Schoology messages, or posts to related discussions.

Parents can contact me through mkinney@pway.org

Please, now more than ever, reach out if you have any questions, concerns or thoughts to share. :)


How you can find resources to help your student:

Student’s homework assignments can be found on the calendar on the Schoology platform. Projects and related materials can be found here as well.

A great deal of our class activities and resources can be found in part or whole in the “Materials” section under your student’s class group.

Other tasks, notifications and reminders for our class are frequently posted as “Updates”.

Through these resources you can receive a clear picture of your student’s learning in Social Studies and the tasks that they have to complete.

 



Our Course:

In 7th grade we explore World History-Part One, taking us from early human history through the ancient civilizations of Africa, Asia and Europe, and thematic connections between these times and our own. Along our journey we make regular stops to develop our critical thinking, research, and communication skills.

Our grading ratios are as follows:
Tests 40%
Quizzes 30%
Classwork 15%
Homework 15%
