7th/8th Grade Social Studies/Spanish: Mrs. Ryan
In Social Studies, our focus will be on American History. We will have many opportunities to be apart of engaging, hands-on experiences that help us learn about our country's history. Our 7th graders will learn early colonial history and how we became the United States of America. They will have a chance to enhance their roles as citizens as we learn about the U.S. and Illinois Constitutions and how they affect our daily lives. Our 8th graders will be looking into more modern history as we dive into how the American way of life has changed from the Civil War all the way to World War II.
As for Spanish, this will be an introductory course offered to 8th graders to get them prepared for high school Spanish courses.
At Bishop McNamara, our commitment is to meet each child where they are and then to inspire them to realize their unique potential. We look forward to watching our students grow and learn during this school year!
