Welcome to Mrs. Sidou's Social Studies Website!
Message to students and parents of Mrs. Sidou on 3/16/20:
First and foremost, I hope that you are all well and want to ensure you that I care about you and am here to assist you in any way possible. These are unprecedented times for our community and we will be taking things one day at a time so stay positive and hang in there. I will be uploading the Essential Understandings for each grade level online through Office 365 so that you have access to them from home. Please check your school e-mail accounts, Remind, and Office 365 ONE DRIVE regularly for updates, and feel free to e-mail me with any questions or concerns. I will be checking my e-mails a few times each day. I miss you already and will be contacting you soon- in the meantime, catch up on reading of any kind, check out an interesting video or podcast that has to do with history, do a puzzle, write in a journal- take yourselves one step farther in your learning journey than where you were yesterday- you deserve it!
Global Studies 9 Class Objectives:
Global 9 is a cross-cultural, thematic and chronological examination of the modern era. From the Neolithic Revolution through the World at 1750, the course examines how individuals and events have shaped world history and contributed to the challenges humans have faced over time.
This year students will learn historical thinking skills while further building upon them in an effort to become respectful and engaged world citizens. Emphasis will be placed on reading primary and secondary documents, interpreting graphs and visuals, and writing research-based essays.
