About Us

This blog belongs to the 8-1 Social Studies class at Newtown Friends School.  Our teacher, Kristen Sanchez, believes in 'doing' history with primary sources, not textbooks, and analyzing history from multiple perspectives.  We read related historical fiction with our English teacher, Melissa Carroll, to enhance our understanding of people and the past.
