Dear Parents and Students:
My name is Pam Siino and I am your childs World History teacher. I am a University of California Santa Barbara graduate and hold a bachelors degree in History. Upon receiving my degree at UCSB I went to St. Mary's College of California where I received my teaching credential. I have taught computers, 2nd grade, 4th grade, 7th grade English and History, and 8th grade English and History. Below you will find information pertaining to this class.
Welcome to World history. During this year we will be covering many aspects of reading, writing, and reasoning. The 7th grade curriculum is exciting and challenging. Students will be able to develop critical thinking skills and demonstrate their understanding of the material through traditional tests, quizzes, reports and/ or projects through group and independent study. The core curriculum will be presented with elements of depth and complexity. There will also be a strong reading and writing component to the course to further expand our cadets skills in ELA. By clicking on any one of the periods below you will be brought to the course syllabus that describes the class more in depth. All instruction will be guided by the Common Core State Standards.
I look forward to sharing my love for History with our OMI cadets. Let's have a great year!
