• Welcome to Mr. DePew's
    8th Grade Social Studies Class
     
     
    Hello all! 
     
    Due to issues with OneNote, all work can now only be found either on my teacher page or in your email. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to me via email or Remind.
     
    *Zoom Sessions* Every Tuesday and Thursday from 12-1 I'll be hosting a Zoom meeting for anyone that wants to ask questions about assignments or just to bop in and say hi! Attendance is not mandatory. I'll send you a link and password via email the day of the meeting.
     
    Grading Policy:
    • All completed work will receive full credit.
    • Unsatisfactory work will receive a U and the student will have the opportunity to correct their work.
    • Assignments that are not submitted will receive a NG and students will have the opportunity to complete the assignment until a designated date.
     
    Update for Weeks 8 and 9, 5/18 - 5/29
    • I have emailed you all of the assignments for the next two weeks. There are only 2 given the upcoming holiday weekend and the length of the second assignment. As always, there are also audio recordings of both lessons so you don't have to read through everything on your own.
    • I am still collecting work from every past week.
     
    Update for Weeks 6 and 7, 5/4 - 5/15

    Update for Week of 3/23 - 3/27
    • I have emailed you all of the assignments for this week and created a section on my teacher page. OneNote does not seem to be working. You can email me your completed work. Send me an email or a message on Remind if you have any other questions.
    • There are audio lessons for each day so you don't have to read the articles on your own. Just go to "Audio Recordings" on my teacher page.
    • In your OneNote you'll find 4 assignments for the week in a section titled "3.23-3.27". All are outlined in detail with an audio recording for clarity and efficiency when reading. I'll be grading assignments throughout the week but won't update Powerschool until the end of the week (Friday). If you have any questions you can reach out through Remind or email (both are listed below). I'm not sure if we'll have a Zoom session this week as my internet is spotty at best. I miss you all and hope that you're all safe and well!
