CAREER OF THE DAY:

History Teachers develop students’ knowledge of historical events and social science at the middle school, high school and postsecondary levels. History teachers may also have duties outside of the classroom, such as preparing class trips or monitoring student organizations. 

CHALLENGE OF THE DAY:

Protests … Looting … Curfew and so MUCH MORE! 

 We thought we were living history during the COVID-19 stay at home orders … well we are REALLY witnessing history now! This last week was one for the books! While it brought so many people together, there were some times when things seemed to get a little out of hand.  This week Ms. Anastasia is giving us special access to the Teen Current Events activity! Ms. Philecia and Ms. Anastasia team up to ask how the current events are making you feel.  

We’ve created a new survey so that we can REALLY hear what you want to say!  

Share this page with your friends so we know just what it is that you want to talk about!
