Welcome to Mr. P's Classroom Information Page

Educational Philosophy:

Social Studies is about the development of literate citizens-individuals with knowledge, skills, and civic values they need to become active and reflective participants in the world of the twenty-first century. Students will take time to explore topics, to practice skills in meaningful contexts, and to relate their learning to the world in which they live. I want my students to love history, know about their world, analyze current events, and feel confident coversing intelligently, being literate citizens informed about the news of the day and in history in which they find themselves.
