Juniors-You will be doing a quick look at early American History before the core of this

creation of the U.S. Constitution.  Put your law hats on we are going to Harvard!

Sophomores- World History 
We are going pre-historic before we are going historic in this class.  Oh, we will study the
Greeks and the Romans but when and where does it all start?? I bet you can not wait to
find out.   Who were the early humans? What caused the rise of civilizations and of course what caused them to fail? What is in a culture and what makes a social structure?? This and a lot more in this years World History class.

Freshman-  Geography- We start out with the five basic themes of Geography and look at how geographers look at the world.  We again look at different types of maps and globes.  We look as Geography as being a craft and an occupation.  We will learn to think like a geographer.  So, who wants to see the world and experience the world first hand. Maybe you should be a geographer.  Get fired up we are going to see the world in this class.
