WELCOME TO 8TH GRADE WORLD HISTORY!
Dear Students and Parents,
I want to welcome you to our 8th grade World History class! We are about to embark on a year-long adventure traveling back in time to study ancient civilizations. We will explore the foundations and beliefs of the major world religions. Our journey will conclude right around the Medieval Period. Obviously, we have thousands of years to cover so our time together will be precious.
I am so excited about this year and about getting to know each and every one of you! I have many activities planned throughout our adventure. Some you will be working as individuals while others you will work with a partner or group. I want to give you as many opportunities as possible to demonstrate what you know and what you have learned.
I want our class to be an exciting, fun, and productive environment in which to work and I need your help to create this. I want ALL of us to be involved in each class and to be respectful of each other. You will only get as much out of this class as you put in it. I am pledging to be committed to you and this class each day and I want you to pledge to do the same. Parents, I am asking for your support outside the classroom. This is crucial to a successful education!
If there is anything you ever need please do not hesitate to come and talk to me. Do not be intimidated to ask questions or admit that you do not understand…that is what I am here for! Parents, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns. I cannot wait to start our journey together!
