WELCOME TO THE SIXTH GRADE!
My name is Suzanne Golden and I am currently teaching 6th grade social studies. Sixth grade social studies is centered on world history and world geography. Our twenty-first century students need to be equipped with historical knowledge to analyze change. They must understand history as a key to their future; not as a dusty vestige of the past, but as a dynamic gift. Students will understand that the early migration of people to all parts of the world led to the countless cultures that exist all over the globe. By including class time for both large and small group instruction, we are able to guide their learning and unlock each individual student's greatest potential. We are hopefully creating students who read and write not only for information but for the love of learning!
Students are on their way to becoming an asset to the adult world with powerful skills in literacy and a greater understanding of where we have come from as a society.
