Mrs Phillips US History

hi i am mrs phillips just starting my sixth year here at mueller park junior high school where i’ve taught english u.s history and i’m also the latinos and action advisor before coming here i taught in las vegas i taught in salt lake city and i actually taught for 10 years for the electronic high school online so i’ve had um a few years teaching i’ve got a couple of teenage kids of my own at home so it’s pretty much 24 7 teenagers for me um and i’m sending my first to college this year so it’s a big step for mom hi so what will you learn in my class so this is u.s history one and it focuses on the events that happen in the country before 1800. you’ll get us history too when you’re a junior in high school but it turns out that we’re actually a pretty interesting bunch of people to study in our early days we’ll get to study interesting topics like the revolutionary war and the drafting of the constitution i mean those things that make up the foundation of our country today be advised i will also require some some solid thinking in class to be able to read critically we’ll work on reading skills we’ll work on speaking skills i want you to be able to speak confidently and i want you to be able to write convincingly and so we’ll work on those cognitive skills that help you succeed not just in my class but in every class that you take and truthfully in any career that you choose [Music] so what do you need to succeed in my class well the most important ingredient you probably already have just the willingness to come each day prepared to contribute respectfully to our classroom community to to contribute to the classroom team in this fun learning experience that we’re about to undertake now you will need certain materials also to succeed you’re going to need a fully charged computer earbuds or headphones and notebook or folder whichever makes you happiest a blue or black pen and then a pen of a different color because sometimes we need to distinguish between two different things as we take notes we’ll also need a highlighter so those are the those are the things that you can buy at um walmart when you go buy your school supplies so here’s the deal i am here for you to help you succeed in any way possible i want to give you all the support that i can um sometimes i it will be obvious that you need some support from me and sometimes it won’t be so i am relying on you to let me know when you need help of any kind now obviously you can always email me but better yet come chat with me let me know that you’ve got something you would like some help with and we can set up an appointment before school after school during lunch or something that we can sit down and work through whatever problems or issues you’re having so that this can be a successful year for you so this slide is self-explanatory looking forward to getting to meet you and starting off on this learning journey we’ll have together see you next week [Music]
