    Teacher: Ms. Steagald

    Dear students and parents,

Students will have access to these materials at school and at home using the internet on their computers, smartphones, tablets, etc. Extra resources will also be provided for those without internet access at home. This year will be a very important milestone in learning World History; never the less, we will all be making the best and most efficient use of our time together.
