Welcome to Buffalo Phil’s History Corral
I am Mrs. Ruland and welcome to my social studies reference page. As a high school social studies teacher, I have been excited with the opportunities available to both students and teachers alike to use the resources available on the Internet to help in the understanding of the social studies discipline. I teach courses in U.S. History, A.P. U.S. History, A.P. World History, Modern World History, and Law and the Citizen. as well as serve as the advisor for the Glenelg Chapter of the National Honor Society. I have also been the advisor for the Mock Trial team and the Model United Nations team. I teach at Glenelg High School, home of the Gladiators, in Glenelg, Maryland.
Important Sites Within My E-Learning Environment
This year I have moved even more things to the virtual classroom environment. I still have not found the single service that offers everything I want, so there are multiple parts to the virtual classroom.
Student Information Form – Completing this form is one of your first assignments.
- Comcast Site - This is the original part of the site dating to 1997. It is still a very important source of information. In addition to assignment logs and calendars, you will find extensive collection of resources organized in conjunction with course topics.
- Classroom Moodle Site – This is a password protected site. This is the main part of the online virtual classroom. Each course has its own collection of pages containing a variety of interactive activities.
- Mrs. Ruland at GlenelgHigh.org – GHS created a new web site last year that offers many opportunities for class web sites. I will be exploring this resource this year.
- Google Apps – This is also a password protected site. The various apps provide students with the opportunity to collaborate from any computer.
