    Conflict and Compromise
     
     
     
     
    We spent the 1st Trimester learning about the Original 13 Colonies and how America won their Independence from Britain.  Moving into Trimester #2, we will focus on our Constitution, "The Law of The Land."   We will also begin to look at History Day "Conflict and Compromise," students will reflect on an individual, event or thing that embodies the theme.  Students are wrapping up their American Revoultion Projects, so many amazing, creative, and informative projects to present and share.

    Welcome Back to School!
    I would like to introduce myself to the Mills Community, my name is Mrs. Peterson-Mule`. I am an 8th Grade United States History Teacher.
     I look forward to working with 8th grade students, as we dive deep into the world of United States History!  We will not only learn about history, we will experience history through visuals, films, projects, debates and simulations.  The class will provide opportunities for students to work in partnerships, individually, as well as groups.  Students will create an Interactive Notebook, chronically all of their knowledge and work from the units of study.  I look forward to helping students better understand the relationship between modern day and the past while building a skill set that will support them in the future of becoming Civic Minded Citizens.  I will use the website to upload class information, handouts, announcements and any other pertinent information.  2016-17 is going to be a great year here at Mills!
