What is Social studies?
Every week there will be pages available for each class, so that you can check on assignments, in-class work, and look at powerpoints. There is a Blogroll with links on this page that will assist you for different projects and research. There also are some cool educational game sites included. This is a work in progress. The intent is to allow students and parents the ability to keep up with what is going on in the classroom even if you’re not there. If you need to send work or touch base, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and send attachments using word (PDF is even better). The Blog is another vehicle, but keep in mind that everyone will see it if approved by me. Remember: I’m available to talk to after 7:25 am most days and after school as well.
ONE EVENING, AN OLD CHEROKEE TOLD HIS GRANDSON ABOUT A BATTLE THAT GOES ON INSIDE PEOPLE. HE SAID
“THE BATTLE IS BETWEEN TWO WOLVES INSIDE US ALL. ONE IS EVIL-IT IS ANGER, ENVY, JEALOUSY,GREED, AND ARROGANCE. THE OTHER IS GOOD-IT IS PEACE, LOVE, HOPE, HUMILITY, COMPASSION, AND FAITH.”
THE GRANDSON THOUGHT ABOUT THIS FOR A WHILE AND THEN ASKED HIS GRANDFATHER “WHICH WOLF WINS ?”
THE OLD MAN REPLIED “THE ONE YOU FEED”…
If we do not maintain justice, justice will not maintain us.
I want to salute those of you who have pushed yourself to be the best you can be. You and the world will be better off because of your choice. There are too many people out there who fail to live up to their potential and fall short. I can’t tell you how much I admire those of you who take on whatever life throws at you as a challenge and strive to overcome all odds. Keep up the good work. You are making yourself a person that you can be proud of. Life just doesn’t happen-it’s what you make it.
