meant to help parents, teachers, and students access quality 7th grade US history content during this tough time. Please click on the drop down menus above to access content.
Lessons: I will prepare lessons aligned to the New York State Social Studies Framework that are short but meaningful. For each lesson I will include a brief lesson plan that can be downloaded to help guide the lesson. The lesson will have all the materials necessary in one document, except videos, which will appear on this website. These lessons will have suggested modifications and accommodations for students at different levels of readiness. Follow on Twitter to be updated when new lessons are uploaded.
Note: I have screened all the content and everything I post is age appropriate for the average 7th grade student. However, I encourage you to review all materials and exercise your own judgment before showing them to your child.
People make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S. Truman
Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

Our flag honors those who have fought to protect it, and is a reminder of the sacrifice of our nation's founders and heroes. As the ultimate icon of America's storied history, the Stars and Stripes represents the very best of this nation.
What is history? An echo of the past in the future; a reflex from the future on the past.
