Welcome to Mr. Gallagher's Class Page! "A nation cannot move forward without first examining where it has been." As an eleven year veteran of teaching middle school Social Studies, I invite my students to explore our continent's and our nation's past to discover, examine, and explore how our past has affected our current national condition. I look forward to another year of challenging my students' minds and helping them explore the exciting concepts underlying our nation's storied history. Come with me and embark on a year of discovery and exploration into history! 7th Grade Social Studies explores early American civilizations through the settlement of the American colonies, the American Revolution and the Revolutionary War, and the formation of republican government in the United States, and finally through to the Age of Jackson. Students this year will also be using chromebooks in the classroom weekly, and Google Classroom to retrieve certain assignments, take quizzes, and submit work. Daily homework assignments can be found for 7th grade Social Studies by clicking on the calendar function for this page and by clicking on the word "Homework" for the current day. 

Students should be reviewing what they learned in class each night for about 10 minutes, and writing down 1-2 questions about anything they still do not understand regarding the concepts being taught. It is a good idea to ask your child to teach you what they learned in social studies each day (when possible). Research proves that students can remember approximately 90% of what they are able to accurately teach others!

** I will be having Extra Help for 7th Grade in my classroom (Room 15) on Thursdays at 12:05 pm starting on 09/20/18.
