I am glad that we will be exploring history together. Over this school year, you and I are going to be partners in an exploration of the human race over the centuries. We will explore whether there are really heroes and villains, learn about amazing innovations, investigate the causes of wars and their consequences and much, much more. Please use this website to stay abreast!
