As we wrapped up Term 1, we began learning about the 13 colonies and the reasons each were founded. The assignment we completed in class can be downloaded below or under Unit 2. Students do NOT need to watch the videos to fill in this handout. If they move to the end of the video the information will be provided there. Students need to color code the assignment to reflect the 3 regions of the colonies: New England, Middle and Southern. We discussed the colonies in class in lieu of watching the videos. Students were expected, however, to copy down the information while presented on the screen.
My name is Captain Danny Horne. I am going into my 12th year of teaching for the 2019-2020 school year. I have a Masters Degree from BYU in Educational Leadership, a Bachelor's from UVU in History/Military Science and I am endorsed to teach Special Education (taught it for 5 years), Gifted & Talented (A.L.L.), Coach, and to be an Administrator in schools. In other words, I am more than qualified to do what I do. I'm close to being done with a second Master's Degree, but have put that on hold as I explore Doctorate programs. I speak Polish, some English, love learning and speaking Spanish with students and I'm learning Italian because ...why not? I am also the Varsity Head Coach for Westlake Lacrosse, which is a great honor! I get to do two of my passions in life outside of being a husband and father: Teaching and Coaching.
The purpose of this blog is to reflect on lessons taught in class and help all of us grow and connect better with people and events in history so that we may be more fully impacted, inspired and empowered.
