8IA - Mr. Agoro
Dear Parents and Students,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all to 8th grade Integrated Advanced U.S. History. This course is the second part of the 2 year U.S. History curriculum at our school. In this course you will learn to evaluate information and understand enduring issues throughout American history. We will be relating current event topics to those of the past, in order to understand the history with a focus on primary and secondary sources.
As your teacher this year, my expectations for you will be high. In this class you will be required to complete various activities from homework, tests, group work, and projects. All work will lead to your quarterly grade averages and final grade. With support of parents and students, this will be an amazing school year. I look forward to creating an environment that will make the subject of Social Studies fun and engaging to all students.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at (516) 488-9231 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
