I started teaching 7th Grade World Geography two years ago, and I absolutely love it! After several years of ELA, teaching social studies has been a refreshing change. I haven't completely abandoned my roots, though. Social studies is best taught through books and stories, so I'm on a mission to effectively combine the two for the good of my students.
This summer I'm working on opening a Teachers Pay Teachers store called Social Studies the Write Way. There's a lot to learn about how to prepare my products and put them in the store...and I mean a LOT to learn! It's an empty store at the moment, but I think I'll be ready of offer my first few products tomorrow. It's been an adventure so far, and I can't wait to see where this leads in the future. Hopefully it'll lead to more consistent blogging...but we'll see how that goes once school starts again!
