Welcome to Mr. Holmberg’s Homepage!
Today is Friday, October 24, 2014
Thank you for visiting my homepage and welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at Oakridge Middle School!
Wow! I find it hard to believe that we're already half-way through our first marking period! Keep in mind that our marking periods are now nine weeks long, which makes it even more difficult to believe how quickly the school year is rolling along.
My 8th grade Social Studies students are beginning Unit Two of our curriculum: "Challenges to An Emerging Nation". This unit covers the creation of a new government after the Revolutionary War and the United States gaining independence from Britain. We'll discuss the first attempt at a new government - the Articles of Confederation - as well as the Constitutional Convention and the ideas that were discussed and debated during that meeting. Finally, we'll examine the contents of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Please refer to this page often throughout the school year, as I use it as a means to communicate to both parents and students about both important information and the topics and we'll be covering in my 8th grade Social Studies classes.
As always, please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.
