Welcome to the 7th grade!
My name is Jennifer McDonough and I will be teaching Social Studies and Content Literacy on team Maple this year. This is my 21st year at Woodbury, however, my first year in 7th grade. I look forward to teaching and learning along-side the students. I truly enjoy the middle school years and strive to bring the same excitement and joy to the students in class.
In my free time, I enjoy going to the beach, reading, and spending time with friends and family. I have three lovely boys and a wonderful husband. I also love the Red Sox, painting and all kinds of crafts.
I look forward to a wonderful 2019-2020 school year with everyone!

Grade 7 World Religions and European History Through 1700
In Grade 7, students focus on the development of Western Culture and history beginning with an overview of the Abrahamic Religions, the growth and development of the Islamic World, a study of Europe after the Fall of Rome and into the Middle Ages, and culminating with a study of the Cultural, Political, and Religious shifts of the Renaissance and Protestant Reformation. Students contend with questions such as the following: “How do belief systems influence the behavior of individuals?”, “What happens when Empires collapse or collide?”, “What causes the establishment and destruction of social/political systems?”, and “How does material culture demonstrate the values/understandings of a culture or society?”.
