Newman, Kathryn (9th Grade Social Studies)

Hello!

My name is Katie Newman, and I teach both pre-AP and regular 9th grade social studies. I had the privilege of teaching 6th grade world history at NPA last year, and I’m excited for to the opportunity to teach world history at the high school level.

Ninth grade world history gives students an overview of the world’s ancient civilizations, going from its earliest cultures through the Enlightenment. Additionally, students will study geography and analyze current events from around the world. Both courses will be taught using a combination of teaching platforms and methods, including Google Classroom, Zoom, lecture and note taking, discussions, and research projects. I hope to both challenge and inspire students to become mini-historians, enjoy discovering the past, and make connections from the past to what’s happening today.
