Mr. Sean O'Connor
My name is Mr. Sean O'Connor and I am the Team Blue social studies teacher. I am thrilled to be working with the great children and families of Huth and am very much looking forward to sharing my passion for the social sciences while working to instill life and character skills in students. Hopefully, through the studying of social studies, students will leave my class with a more expanded world view, an understanding of how to positively interact with and respect the opinions of others, and become diverse, well-rounded learners with strong work ethic skills.
Please remember that the History Fair project will be due on Monday, April 1st. All boards will be graded through the course of that week and count as a project grade for the fourth quarter. See the Online Resources tab for more resources for the project, including the original packet that was sent home, the project rubric, headings that can be used on the board, and some other suggestions and guidelines.
7th Graders will be starting preparations for the Federal and State Constitution Tests in the coming week. All 7th grade students will need to have a highlighter with them for note-taking purposes. The United States Constitution Test will be on Monday, May 6th and the Illinois Constitution Test will be on Wednesday, May 22nd. Please remember that it is imperative every student studies for the test on a regular basis. Be sure to ask your child questions regarding the Constitution and follow up regarding the studying they should be doing at home.
