Hello 6th Grade Families!
I am Mr. Shea and will be your child’s Social Studies teacher this 2022-2023 school year.
I have been teaching Social Studies for 20 years in both public and private school settings. It is truly my passion and honor to be able to share my love and knowledge of the subject matter with your child this academic year.
Your child will be receiving a detailed syllabus on the rituals and routines that will be followed in Social Studies class. This syllabus should answer most questions relevant to our studies this year.
Social Studies-This year we will be focusing on the study of Ancient Civilizations. We will explore Mesopotamia, Egypt, Phoenicia, and Sub-Saharian Africa. The work will center around the geography, government, social structure and accomplishments of each civilization.
Literature– In class we will be reading, discussing and analyzing several prominent myths, short stories and modern classics throughout the year.
Vocabulary-The work will be centered around units of vocabulary study and related exercises. Students will utilize correct spelling, definition and usage of assigned vocabulary words.
Religion-This year in religion we will be looking at topics and themes such as doctrine, ritual, scripture. We will also highlight the importance of God in our everyday lives.
