Hello! My name is Ms. Ariel Bissell and I am going to be your 6th grade social studies teacher! This is my first year at Crestwood, but it is my third year of full-time teaching. Previously, I taught at Citizens Leadership Academy in Cleveland, OH. I graduated from Ashland University, majored in Middle Grades Education with concentrations in language arts and social studies and minored in History. I grew up in Twinsburg, OH and now reside in Pepper Pike, OH making me a proud northeast Ohio native! I am so excited to be teaching 6th grade social studies. This year we will be covering a HUGE variety of topics including...
- Analyzing sources and documents (primary and secondary sources)
- Organizing events on a timeline (BC/AD and BCE/CE)
- Economics: supply and demand, imports and exports, and how they interact
- History: birth of civilizations including ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, China, etc.
- and SO MUCH MORE!!!
“TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness." ~Howard Zinn, renowned American historian and social activist
