Dear Students and Parents,
Let me start by saying how much I miss teaching you. Just because we are not face to face doesn't mean we stop learning or teaching.
I would like everyone to think of what you have learned so far and apply it to the current events that are taking place in our country. Notice how the government (both State and Federal) are operating. Orders are being issued and laws are being passed. Think of the Preamble to the Constitution and how each goal is being achieved during this time. There are many ways you can connect current day events to the historical past of our country.
Use the following enrichment suggestions to stay on top of what you have already learned. Once we are back together we will begin with the Antebellum Era.
1. Complete the following packets to review Westward Expansion
2. Navigate to previous topics and review course content and the associated Prezi (class presentation).
3. Reread topics from both the old and new book. The old book is on each topic page. If you don't have your new book, email me and I will create a login for you. Access to the new book is found on this page.
4. Use the vocabulary taught in class as part of your everyday speech.
5. Use the following online resources to help review topics already covered.
PHSchool.com - Prentice Hall (Old Class Textbook- Great Source)
USHistory.org - by The Independence Hall Association
Americanhistory.si.edu - National Museum of American History
Civilwar.org - The Civil War In4 (Great site for Revolution War videos)
ph.infoplease.com - Pearson Info Please (Great homework helper!)
6. Take virtual field trips to different museums or national government sites.
7. Go on and browse the Federal government websites. Each branch has their own site. Connect what you're seeing to what you've learned about our government and the Constitution.
8. Watch and listen to current events and make connections as to the operation of our country and Federalism; what the responsibilities of each Federal and State governments can and cannot do. Today's situation is a perfect example of everything you've learned about our government and the Constitution.
Finally, if you have questions regarding any content, please email me. I will respond as quickly as possible.
Please stay safe and healthy.
Remember to follow the guidelines set by the President.
Complete the packets in this order to maximize your enrichment.
