My Name is Joey Wilson and this is my 3rd year at ALMS and I am excited to welcome my 2018-19 students.
So , what exactly do we do in 7th grade Social Studies and why is it important ...
Middle School Social Studies is designed to develop students' understanding of how our world developed- globally, nationally and locally. Students will investigate how geography played a role in shaping civilizations and societies over time. They will analyze conflicts to understand both their causes and their impacts on those involved. Our students will think like historians as they examine primary and secondary sources to form their own understanding of historical eras and events. They will ask questions about how those eras and events continue to influence situations today. The goal is for our middle school students to form a firm foundation on which they will build as they complete the history requirements in high school. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please don't hesitate to contact me. However, please understand that your students education is my top priority and as such I may not be able to respond to emails until after 3pm.

As the 2018-19 school year is upon us , I wanted to share this information with students and parents. Unfortunately we do not have a text book for Social Studies, this means we use lots of resources to copy, print, and make sure our students have the needed readings throughout the school year. With that being said, I have found a book that works well and provides students with needed readings. I have purchased about 15 copies to utilize in class this year; however, that is not enough for everyone. If you would be interested in donating a book (new or used) to our class set or purchasing one for your student to use in class, it would be greatly appreciated. This book can be used as a study reference in 8th grade as well as history courses required in HS. Below is the book information provided from amazon...if you are able to purchase this book, not only will it be a wonderful study tool but you will be saving thousands of trees as well !
