Welcome to my home page!  My name is Alison Bencivenga and I am a 6th grade Social Studies  teacher at Benold Middle School. 

More than any previous generation, today's students will need preparation for a world where trade, research, and communication will go far beyond our national boundaries. Social Studies curriculum in 6th grade, Contemporary World Societies,  is designed to help students understand and appreciate cultural similarities and differences and what causes them to develop--important tools for being successful in the global environment of the future.  

Some key information:

bullet Students must keep an up-to-date journal, which will include notes provided in class as well as assignments. The information in their journals will be included on  tests. 
bullet Students are encouraged to check with me or a reliable classmate after absences to copy journal notes and/or assignments they have missed.  
bulletAssignments will be posted in the classroom daily for students. In addition, the assignments page on this website will be updated weekly and will indicate any assignments to be completed at home.
bulletStudents should arrive in class with their journals each day. They will also need a black pen, dark blue pen, or #2 pencil for class.

Education & Teaching Background:
