Mr. Cox - U.S. History and Government
Welcome to my class!
This is my 3rd year teaching at Madison Central and my fourth year teaching overall. I graduated from Ole Miss with a B.A. in Political Science and a M. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction. I thoroughly enjoy teaching history and government. The two subjects are rarely separate. I place a priority on literacy skills in my classes not only for student success at school, but to prepare them to excel as adults whether they attend college or choose a vocation after high school. Your child will be asked to read passages both in class and as homework in an effort to build mastery and vocabulary. Also, because our country's history is frequently viewed through a political lens, we will have several discussions throughout the year covering very political topics. I promise that my personal political views will never be present in the classroom. I am here to foster critical thinking skills and to lead students to draw their own conclusions.
You can find homework, textbooks, and all relevant classroom materials on Canvas.
Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions or concerns you might have.
