Welcome to Mr. Nicks 8th grade Social Studies class!
The curriculum for 8th grade is American history with a focus at times on North Carolina. The state standards can be found here.
In this class we will sometimes be using canvas. Students can log into canvas through the IAM function on the Caswell County homepage. We will also be using a new digital techbook from Discovery Education this year. The link for this can be found by going to students/parents at the top of the Caswell County homepage, clicking for students, and then clicking the link for DiscoveryEd. This can be accessed in and out of school, and can be logged into with your google account (so if you know your google stuff, you are good).
A link for it is also here.
