I hope everyone had a rejuvenating summer! I’m very excited to be back at St John of the Cross this year, and to be working with this years’ 7th graders. In August we will explore current events on a weekly basis, and we will begin our unit on the Civil War. We will utilize our textbook, primary and secondary sources, film, and more in our examination of the war. Google classroom will be a medium of communication with students, as well as a medium for technology based assignments. Students will need their iPads in class, so be sure to return the iPad agreements. I’m looking forward to another great year!
