A. Reid Social Studies

Welcome to A. Reid Social Studies


Maria_Oscar_ReidHello and Welcome to the A. Reid’s Social Studies website and online companion to the course—the only school website dedicated solely to the social studies and German language students currently attending Paul W. Bell Middle School. In addition to making these courses more interesting and engaging, the aim of this website is to give our students greater possibility to facilitate their own learning and gain the best possible chance for academic success.  The site serves as a value information source for both students and parents.

About the Teacher
Anthony Reid is a native-born South Floridian and graduate of Florida International University, School of International Relations and Education. Before going into teaching he had numerous opportunities working with and teaching young people both here and abroad. In 1997 he was fortunate to become part of the Paul W. Bell Middle School team where he has earned  his National Board Certification and now teaches social studies and German to a diverse group of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.

About the Site
This latest edition to the Online Companion to A. Reid Social Studies has a new design aimed at catering to needs of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.  It features greater access to the course materials by both grade level and by semester quarter.  The Introduction page contains links and information pertinent to students from all three grade levels.  The page also contains links to each of the grade level Courses, which specifically contain sources, links, and information pertaining to the corresponding course.  Listed below are resources for collaborative projects and activities involving students from different grade levels.  Web server space for this site has been provided thanks to the Forever Bloom Alliance, a Paul W. Bell Middle School Dade Partner since 2010.
