8th Grade American Studies

Mr. Burrows-Voyagers 8th Grade American Studies

 

Welcome to Mr. Burrows' web-page!  I hope all of you had a great summer and are ready to have a great school year!  This year will be "different", and it brings new opportunities and challenges.  Each week I'll post a copy of the weekly planner.  If you are Group A, you will be known as the Maroon Group on the Voyagers Team.  If you are Group B, you will be known as the Steel Group on the Voyagers Team.  All online assignments/activities and resources will be posted in my Google Classroom.  I also included tabs to access the Course Overview and Expectation packets, homework assignments and due dates, link to online textbook, and where I'll post study guides and help.  Lastly I included a link to CNN 10 (ten minute current event news program).  If you need to contact me please email me at gburrows@mbgsd.org

 

I look forward to building relationships with all of you, and being your guide to early American History!
