Welcome to Mr. Demos' 7th Grade Titans Social Studies Class!This site is a place where you can find information about what is happening in our classroom. If you are looking for handouts, notes from class, or materials for an assignment, click on "Resources".
I have been teaching at AUGS in some capacity for the last 10 years. I’ve spent the last 8 as a 7th grade Social Studies teacher. I graduated from Northern Illinois with a degree in History and my middle and high school teaching credentials. I live nearby with my amazing wife and two obnoxious cats.

Our Unit of Study
Inquiry & Investigation - We are beginning the important work of exploring how historians actually do history and emulating that in the classroom. We focus on analyzing primary and secondary sources, creating arguments, using evidence, and communicating our findings. Topics include Columbus, Native Americans, and early European Explorers.
Your Own History & Historical Inquiry Puzzle is already due.
