What’s the Buzz!
The 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's
Trimester one will focus on picking up in American history where the students left off last year. Students will begin the year by investigating events from the 70's, 80's, and 90's America and analyzing the impact such events had on different groups of people.
National History Day
Per the National History Day website, "Every year National History Day frames students’ research within a historical theme. The theme is chosen for the broad application to world, national, or state history and its relevance to ancient history or to the more recent past. The 2019-2020 theme is Breaking Barriers in History."
Students will be delving into the research process as they pick a topic, conduct research, and create a final presentation of either a paper, exhibit, performance, documentary, or website.
Religion and Culture
Rounding out our year will be a unit on religions and cultures of the world. Students will learn about the many different religions and their immense influence on people's way of life.
About Mrs. Le!
Committed to Education
Welcome! My name is Allison Le, the 8th grade Social Studies teacher at Wells Ogunquit Junior High School! Although this is my first year in the WOCSD School District, I have eight previous years of experience teaching ELA and Social Studies in grades six through eight.
I live in Wells with my husband, our two young kiddos, our dog Gilly, and our cat Lincoln. We spend lots of time playing dress up, coloring, and playing outside! When I'm not hanging out with my family, you can find me going for a run or with my nose in a good book.
I value education that is creative, rigorous, and engaging! I look forward to working with students, families, staff, and the community to make this a successful and fun school year!
