Welcome to 6th Grade Social Studies.

Welcome to 6th Grade Social Studies.

Welcome to 6th Grade Social Studies.

My name is Mr. Proehl. I have been an educator for over 19 years. I also serve on Chillicothe’s City Council as a Council-At-Large. My wife and I have two daughters, and a cat. My favorite subject in school was always Social Studies. I hope after this year you will be able to say the same.

This year you will be learning about ancient world history. We will learn about ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, and China. We will explore how civilizations develop around rivers and the laws, religions, and inventions that each early culture developed. It is an exciting time period to learn about, and I think you will find it to be an adventure.

I try to make this subject as exciting and informative as I can. We will read, take notes, write, do projects, and of course have quizzes and tests. There will be something for everyone to enjoy and excel in. I try to make sure the learning activities are varied and address different learning styles.

The keys to success in my class, and in 6th grade, are organization and turning in assignments. If you can master those two things you will do well no matter how challenging the content gets. To help you stay on top of your assignments I have created a web site.

The web site provides electronic copies of all the handouts we do in class and copies of all the notes I present during lectures. So, if you miss a day or lose an assignment they are only a click away.

Your parents are always welcome to call or email me. Communication is important. I can be reached at:
