Mr. Peltier, 8th U.S. History
ALL ASSIGNMENTS THIS YEAR POSTED ON CANVAS.
As a member of the inaugural staff, I have been teaching and coaching here at Berry Miller since 2008. I teach 8th grade U.S. History. I coach 8th grade football, basketball, and I'm also the boys' cross country and tennis coach.
In the 8th grade we examine the history of the United States from European colonization through Reconstruction after the Civil War. The students will also become familiar with the political, social, cultural, religious, and economic events that influenced the early development of our nation. Emphasis will also be placed on the geography, government, and citizenship of the United States. We will also focus on how certain events and situations in the nation's history are directly related to the present day.
