Hello, everyone!

Welcome to our new classroom! I hope you're all doing okay. I know this is a crazy time and we're going to get through this together.

You might be worried about how online learning is going to work. Don't panic! Instruction won't be much different than what we usually do in class.  Instead of writing things in your journal, you'll write (post) them here on Canvas. You have used Canvas before so this is not a new format for you. I'm confident you'll find your groove and your successes! 

I will be posting assignments each week here on Canvas that you will need to complete by that Friday at 3 pm. The assignments will guide you through what you need to know and what you need to do. 

We will be starting Unit 8: Unity and Division - South Asia which includes India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh. This region is affected by the seasonal monsoon winds which boost agricultural production yet result in massive flooding.  Both Hinduism and Buddhism originated in South Asia and have greatly influenced the culture in the region, along with Islam which spread to the region via trade routes.

To help when you have questions or get stuck, you can email or chat here with me every school day. I'll be available in the mornings from 10-11 and in the afternoons from 2-3. You can email me outside of those times, but I may not be able to answer you immediately.

I'm excited about this new chapter in our learning and I know we will accomplish good things! So let's get started!
