Hello!  We are undergoing some big changes in Mr. J’s classes particularly with Social Studies.  We are in the process of trying out different textbook options including ebooks for next year.  Students will be alerted to assignments and readings via Google Classroom in addition to being on the homework boards in the classroom.  I appreciate the feedback as we endeavor to find new ways to best educate our students with new tools and material.

My goal is to not only teach students more about their world and country, but to make them analytical thinkers and apply the information in the real world.  I want our students to be able to understand different viewpoints and use their creativity in their learning.  Thank you for all of the support!
