Welcome to 7th Grade Social Studies
I am a historian, writer as well as a history teacher and history nut. When not doing all of that I spend my time at the Museum of the Waxhaws or designing historical clothing. This will be my 21st year here at Union Academy and in addition to my teaching degree, I have a BA in History with a minor in Geography, a BFA in Design and Architecture with a minor in Cultural History and a MA in History. I attended Converse College, Rowan University and the American Military University. You could say I really love history and I love to share that love with students.
I also manage "Angus Charles History Dog" across social media (check us out on Facebook and Instagram at present) which promotes history and historical preservation as well as promoting historical sites.

New Changes in Policy
1. There will be no more "redo" on assignments and tests. Students who are not happy with their score will be able to do corrections to earn back partial credit.
2. Late Work -- students will lose 10 points each day an assignment is late (these points will be deducted after the assignment has been graded)
3. Grading Scale for my Social Studies Class
Assessment -- 50%
Quizzes -- 25%
Classwork/Homework -- 25%
- Important reminder to Parents and Students
When going to Canvas to do an assignment, have students click on "Modules" rather than on the other categories -- this will show them all the assignments at one time
What do the numbers mean on my assignments -- such as "2.2 classwork" The first number is the unit number and the second number is the lesson number -- it might also include the category. So -- this is Unit 2, Lesson 2 and it is a classwork grade.
This year UA will be utilizing Canvas as a means of communication, course work, and a variety of other purposes. Please see the links below for more information.
