Welcome to 8th Grade Social Studies! This year in Social Studies, we will focus on American history beginning with the building of our New Nation after the Constitution and ending the school year with Reconstruction.   We will examine the political, economic, and social events and issues related to the development of our nation during these time periods. We will be using a variety of rich primary and secondary source material including historical documents, biographies and autobiographies, novels, speeches, letters, and diaries, as well as poetry, songs, and artwork.

We encourage you to visit our American history website, www.TheEraOfOurWays.com, for access to resources, notes, videos, and handouts.  The course syllabus can be found on The era of our ways website at the top of the welcome page.

About Mr. Nichols:

 I come from an educational family including grandparents who were teachers and principals, a mother who was a kindergarden teacher for 40 years, and several friends who are teachers.  Because I come from a strong educational family background, I appreciate the value of a good education.  I have always wanted to be a teacher and love my job. I attended Sam Houston State University and majored in education.  I began my teaching career six years ago in Conroe ISD.  This is my second year in Spring Branch and at Cornertone. I love history and truly believe it is a window into our past, present, and future.    I love working at Cornerstone and contributing to its continual success!
