Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians:

My name is Alex Christian and I am thrilled to be teaching Minnesota Studies at Dakota Meadows Middle School. I am excited to work with Sixth Graders as they take on the new responsibilities and challenges of middle school.  It is my hope that my students learn not only the content, but develop the organizational skills and intrinsic motivation that is essential for success in high school and beyond. I want to emphasize that I cannot successfully do my job without the participation of students and their parents/ guardians. I look forward to working together to help make this a meaningful learning experience for all of us. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me (the best way is via email).

In Minnesota Studies students will explore Minnesota, looking at some of the most important moments and features of our state. And, students will develop skills, including 1. reading and interpreting historical texts and maps, 2. analysis of historical evidence and graphs, 3. writing, 4. research, 5. academic debate, and 6. using technology.
