About Mrs. Carter
I'm a Mississippi native where I attended public schools and graduated from the prestigious Mississippi University for Women with a BS Degree in Political Science and Economics. Later, I received an Education Certification from Armstrong Atlantic College and recently I became Gifted Certified. Thanks to the military I have lived in seven states, including Hawaii for three years, where I taught Drama and Careers. It is a pleasure teaching the children of Burke County and getting to know the wonderful people of this community.
This year we will focus on the regions of Southwest Asia (Middle East), Southern Asia, & Africa. We will examine the political & physical features, government, economy, culture, and ethnic & religious groups of these regions.
Every student has a Georgia Coach book and a 7th Grade World Studies Workbook. The internet, and other related resources will also be used. Interactive activities will be done in small and large groups, pairs, whole class, and individually.
