    Welcome back students, parents, and guardians!  As we embark on an unprecedented 2020-2021 school year I would like to introduce myself and give you some information related to Georgia Studies.  
    Mr. Tackett's BIO: I was born in El Paso, Texas on August 31st, 1971.  As a kid I grew up in Texas, Oregon, Canada, California, New Mexico, Colorado, Indiana, and graduated high school in Geneva, Illinois.  I went to Kansas State University for a couple years, and graduated from West Georgia College in 1995.  I began my teaching career at East Paulding Middle School and I helped to open Moses Middle School in 2001.  This is my 26th year in education and there is a good chance I may have taught your older brother or sister, or maybe even your parents. lol
    IN-CLASS Georgia Studies:  Now that students have received their schedule the first question is usually, "What supplies do I need for Georgia Studies class?"  I take pride in having the least expensive supply list at Moses.  Aside from your basic pen / pencil requirements students will only need two items:  Pocket Folder and a Spiral Notebook.  Yes, that is it.  With 26 years of teaching experience I have found students to be much more organized with a simple pocket folder and a spiral notebook.  I will update this webpage in the coming days to provide an outline of all of the standards students will learn in Georgia Studies class.
    VIRTUAL Georgia Studies:  Students will access their Georgia Studies activities on CANVAS beginning Monday, August 3rd.  There will not be any actual coursework assignments that are graded next week, instead students will be completing some basic "Get to Know You" activities.  You may hear about Plato courses or assignments from other subject areas, however, Plato does not have a Georgia Studies course.  Instead, students will access their assignments on Canvas as well as USATestPrep.  I will provide much more information in the coming days outlining what exactly students will learn and what our expectations will be moving forward.  
    Until then, take care and I look forward to working with you during the school year.
