Welcome

  •  Mrs. Petrella's 8th Grade Social Studies Virtual Classroom

     

    This year has been like nothing most of us have ever experienced and has left many of us wondering, how did we get here?  I'm looking forward to our journey together as we analyze and interpret the historical events and shifts in society that have led us to where we are today as well as how recent current events can impact our future. 

     

    We will continue to work toward mastering the following Illinois Learning Standards for Social Science. As the standards suggest, we will dive into the four major disciplines of Social Studies; civics, economics and financial literacy, geography, and of course history. Additonally, as we engage with our Social Studies content we will further develop our questioning, evaluating, and communicative processes to enhance our Inquiry Skills.
