WELCOME TO THE 8TH GRADE!!!
WELCOME TO 8TH GRADE SOCIAL STUDIES!!!
WELCOME TO MR. WILLIS' AMERICAN HISTORY CLASS


You'll figure out pretty quickly that I get excited about what might seem strange or nerdy to you. 
For example, this map!
"A plan of my farm on Little Huntg. Creek & Potomk. R. G. W." 
-- A plan of my farm on Little Huntg. Creek & Potomk. R. G. W.

Can you guess who "R.G.W." was?  If you guessed George Washington you'd be right!  In our class you'll get a lot of REAL stuff (or sources) and they are REAL old.  I like it, because nobody is telling me what I should think about it.  I get to guess, figure out, use what I already know and move on.  There are enough people telling me what I should do, or think.  I like to make my own choices.  In our class, you will begin to figure out how to make good, academically minded guesses based on REAL sources.

About me?  Well, it's a long story that I fill in as the year goes on.  Please ask me questions about what you would like to know.  Let's have a great year!
