Ms. Gassel’s
Social Studies Classroom

Welcome to Ms. Gassel’s Social Studies website, dedicated to 7th-9th grade Social Studies. I am excited to get to know each one of my students as well as your families. This year, seventh graders will be learning World History with a focus on the Eastern Hemisphere. Eighth grade will be learning U.S. History from colonization to 1898 and ninth grade will be learning U.S. History from the Reconstruction era to the Global age.

This year, our class will be utilizing a lot of technology, including Google Classroom, Discovery Education, Kahoot!, Khan Academy, and Study Island. We will also be researching and analyzing Primary and Secondary Sources.

Our Social Studies classroom is going to have a great year and a ton of fun!  😀
