Dr. Andrea R. Baugh
W. S. Hornsby Middle School
8th Grade Teacher
Second semester begins today. Check the course calendar for updates on topics covered. Week 1 will cover the geography of Georgia and the first American Indians.
Welcome to 8th grade social studies 2019-2020. This course combines 9th grade American Government and Civics (1st Semester) with 8th grade Georgia Studies (2nd Semester.) This course will be fast paced due to the volume of material that will have to be covered. Therefore, student attendance is vital to the successful completion of the Semetster exam for 9th grade and the 8th Georgia Milestones assessment in the spring. We will be using interactive notebooks daily. Your support is GREATLY appreciated! Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Again, the needed materials are:
- composition books
- blue or black ink pens
- 2-3 ring binder that can be shared with every 8th grade class
- colored pens
- color pencils
Grades are uploaded once a week. If you have not created an account in the Parent Portal to monitor your child's grades, please call the school to arrange an appointment with the parent facilitator.
In my class, we will continually work on SWIRL (speaking, writing, inquiry, reading, and listening). These skills will assist students with research, anwering constructed responses, essay writing, reading and comprehending text, and oral presentations.
