About this Blog

This is a webpage designed for use in Mr. Little’s 7th Grade Social Studies class. For students, it’s a useful tool to find web resources and get materials/updates for class. For parents, it’s a great way to keep up with what we’re doing. The website is updated very frequently (several times per week), so please visit often. You’ll see slideshows, videos, board work, and discussions posted here, as well as pdf versions of documents (study guides, worksheets, notes) that you can easily print and use at home.

A few technical and organizational notes:

Any assignment can be made up at (almost*) anytime. I can’t possibly give a good excuse why a student who fails something should not be allowed a chance to redo it (and LEARN from it) again. This usually applies to forgotten homework assignments and poorly done quizzes, tests, and projects. If your child does badly, they clearly did not learn. She/He and I should talk about the problem, address the problem area(s), and try again. If your child happens to be in this position, have them come see or e-mail me! *(My only rule is that we must be in the current unit of study. No assignments turned in 2 months late; sort of defeats the point.)

Please understand the following points regarding grades in the gradebook:

  • In the gradebook: X = eXcused (for a large variety of reasons; inquire if necessary), A = Absent (most can be made up; some, such as a video or demonstration, cannot), B = Band (student missed class due to band; assignment should be made up ASAP, unless it’s a video or demo), and 0’s mean that the student did not do it. A blank grade means I have not input that particular assignment for that particular class yet.
  • Not every class has the same assignments. So, if you see something unfamiliar (such as the “Multiple Intelligences Project”), your child likely did not have it. An “X” should be in place of a grade.
  • I do not instantly input grades, but sometimes will. Many assessments/assignments take days to thoroughly grade. I aim for a week’s return on these types of assignments.

If you cannot read/print from scribd, try clicking the blue underline/linked words before or after the document. I try to put another format up so you don’t have to rely on scribd. It’s crabby sometimes, sorry.

    hey, Mr. Little! I was studing on your website when I thought of something I think you should put a copy of the United States map on your website so that people could print it off and study from it. For example what I do is put a clear sheet over it that you can use a dry erase marker or expo marker on it and would come off. Then I write the states on it and check it with a completely filled out copy of the United States map. To see how many i got right its really quite a fun way to study for tests/ quizes

    Thanks, Kellyn!

    Meaghan – I have extra copies of the Quiz available in my room, and tomorrow morning I’ll put the picture of the map on the web for you (all). Look for it!

    Wow….
    At first I come on here to look for the homework thing, and then I see this huge picture of Ned Flanders. Do you know how weird that is? lol whatever…..
    nice pic though

  4. Hey Mr.Little

    Mr.Little just to let you know I am NOT a big fan of quizes. I spent 2 hours studying 4 the capital quiz:( It was easy with the states but capitals is way harder.

  21. Danny B

    Mr. Little what did you want me to talk about in that last paragraph.

    – Dan
    P.S. Hows mason doin

  22. Mr. Little

    Mason is well :)

    In your last graph, you write about HOW the Union won the war. That’s good, expand on that. Explain how the population and such lead to advantages that the Confederacy couldn’t overcome. Explain not just what happened, but what the Union DID to win. Understand?

  23. Megan & Cameron

    Our last few scenes were outside so we planned to do them after school today, but then it started raining before we could finish. Tomorrow we can give you the almost-final project, and give the rest on Thursday (if it doesn’t rain). So, we were wondering if thats okay?

  24. Mr. Little

    No problem. If it does rain, please make modifications to the project to complete this indoors, however uncreative that may look to you.

  25. Mr. Little

    I think I’ve finally found the look I like. :)

    And it’s been like this for 2 weeks now. Get out of Coolsville and come back more often :)

    I was at band the one day we went over the executive branch’s 5 responsibilities, and there’s nothing about them online so I was wondering if you knew of any websites that had anything about that topic on them.

    Thank you!
