Welcome to Utah Studies
Utah is an amazing place, rich in resources, geographic wonders, inspiring history, and diversity of its people. The study of Utah allows students to understand more deeply the place they call home. Utah Studies offers an opportunity for students to learn about their own families and cultures as well as those of others. The Utah Studies standards are based on four social studies disciplines: history, geography, economics, and civics. We will explore the complex history of Utah, with examples of creativity, sacrifice, conflict, innovation, inequity, compromise, and leadership. Additionally, we will learn about Utah’s diverse physical geography, encounter Utah’s economic systems and dynamics, and explore local and statewide political systems.
In my classes, I utilize Canvas to post what we do in class each day as well as post copies of the assignments given that day. This means if you are absent from class you will need to check Canvas to see what you need to complete. I do my best to have Canvas updated each day, I typically will have this done no later than the end of the school day, so please be patient.
You can access the Scholar Academy Canvas page here.
In our class, we will be doing a lot of reading and writing, be prepared! Make sure you bring with you to class something to write with and something to take notes on. It is not my responsibility to provide these for you.
If you would like to donate supplies to our classroom, I would greatly appreciate them.
College Ruled Paper
Dry Erase Markers(Crayola or Expo are preferred)
I also have an Amazon Classroom list created of classroom supplies as well as other useful supplies or tools that could be used in the classroom. That list can be found here.
