Welcome to Social Studies in Room 309

Welcome to room 309! That picture is of me in the 7th grade about 1975. I have been in a 7th grade classroom for 30 years, and if you count my actual year in the 7th grade, that makes 31! I often say I am stuck in the 7th grade as a joke, but I love it. 

It is my goal that you find your child's educational experience in my classroom comfortable, friendly, challenging, and interesting. I am looking forward to another great year with your child. 

My plan is to cover many important concepts in history during the Middle Ages while attempting to make it interesting and connect to today's world. We adopted new curriculum last year that we are excited to implement. TCI (Teacher Curriculum Institute) is  actually the current updated version of what we have been using for the last 12 years. The 6th and 7th grade teachers in the district overwhelmingly support the program. 

I want you to feel comfortable contacting me anytime about any issue. Please be assured that I am at your service because I believe I am working for you and your children, you are my clients. 

Thank you, 

Mr. Whitney
