I’d Like to Thank Mr. Connelly, My First 10th Grade World History Teacher

Fortunately, he didn’t have to prove “value added” in order to keep his job

 

When I was in 10th grade I was placed into Mr. Connelly’s world history class. It was an average level class with average level students who more or less didn’t want to be in school, or specifically didn’t want to be in a history class. They had very little understanding of history or of how to study the subject. As a responsible teacher faced with students who have little background knowledge, Mr. Connelly didn’t just teach history, he taught history study skills like graphic organizers, timelines and outlines, etc.
