Welcome to Mr. Reinhard's
I'm glad you were able to find this site.
I look forward to working with your students and I know this will be a great year.
We will be studying U.S. History up to 1877.
(For further details on what we will be studying and when, see my syllabus page.)
Eighth grade is an important year for your student as they prepare for high school.
It is also an important year for Social Studies.
This year, your student will have to take their first Social Studies state test. (STAAR)
It is a difficult test, but I will do all I can to make sure they are prepared.
I will update this site regularly with study aids that can help them be more successful.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
(The easiest way to reach me is by e-mail. I check my e-mail regularly. It sometimes takes me longer to return a phone call. I don't always get my messages in a timely fashion.)
