US History students should complete their work for Mr. Rhodus’s American Lit class and be ready for class on the first day of school. I recommend that you begin placing your notes and ideas about  Huckleberry Finn  and The Scarlet Letter on your blogs from sophomore English. We will continue to use these throughout the US history class and discuss the correlation of these books to US History.

Freshmen Government and Economics students should also be ready for class on the first day of school. Look below for a list of required items for all of my classes. Lord of the Flies will be discussed during out class and the ideas of free will and the social contract.
