Clay Sims

Welcome to United States History, from 1877 to the present.  This class is a STAAR tested subject designed for the 11th grade student.  
 
My class is very simple, if you put in the effort, you will see the results.  In addition to covering the large amount of content, we will focus on HOW we think.  We will learn to problem-solve, analyze and evaluate, and put our brains on a higher cognitive plane by the time this year is over.  This class is a marathon, not a sprint.  Therefore, daily attendance, effort, and class participation are critical to your success.  I will provide you the tools and the know-how...you build the building!  We are not "Coco"...we are intelligent humans with the ability to think at high levels.  THAT is what you will get out of this class:  Life-long skills and abilities to better function in our society...along with fun and exciting US History stuff!!!!
