Welcome to Mrs. Furno's Home Page!
7th grade Social Studies
Welcome seventh graders and parents to my home page! We are expecting a wonderful year this year! I will be teaching the Social Studies for the Explorers team. I am originally from Georgia and this will be my twenty-second year of teaching. I have been married for 16 years and have four children. I am a graduate of Mercer University in Macon, Georgia.
I always announce a test at least three days in advance with a study guide. Notebooks are a major test grade each quarter. Students need a 1-2" 3 ring binder. Please check the website or planner daily for updated homework assignments. The following is my grading scale:
30% Tests/SS Notebook
Supplies: 1" or 2" 3- ring binder with dividers, colored pencils, scissors
Electronic Portfolio: Students will need a flash drive. Essays/written projects can be stored on these and used for other classes. If there is a problem obtaining one, please let me know. Also, please let me know if you do not have home access to a computer/internet as I will let you use one in class or give a paper copy.
Communication: Please feel free to call me at school or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have any questions about an assignment. Homework will be posted daily on the Explorers Team webpage. Also, I will be posting on Remind 101 so please sign up.
