Welcome back! I am thrilled to be starting my 11th year at Franklin Towne, 10th at FTCES and 8th as the seventh grade Social Studies teacher. This year promises to be an exciting as we will be using a new and improved Social Studies series. We are switching over to HMH Social Studies series and I think that it will be a challenging and rewarding program. There are several other EXCITING changes coming to Towne this year including the addition of an Advisory period first thing in the morning. This will be an wonderful opportunity for students so start the day on the right foot and try new things!
 
In 7th grade Social Studies we will cover United States History from Beginnings to 1877.
Unit 1: Frist Americans and European Exploration
Unit 2: English Colonies and the American Revolution
Unit 3: Forming a New Nation (Constitution/Bill of Rights)
Unit 4: The New Nation Grows
Unit 5: March Madness (Geography Project Based on the NCAA Basketball Tourney)
Unit 6: Slavery and Reform Movements
Unit 7: Civil War and Reconstruction
 
There will also be a major focus on current events as we move through the school year.

Field Trip to the Museum of the American Revolution: Tuesday, November 6th!

Permission slips due: Friday, November 2nd

Students will need:

- A bagged lunch with plastic bottles. Nothing that is breakable. We will be throwing everything away once we are done.
