I would like to welcome all of you my website.
My name is Mr. Coccia (ko-sha).
During the 2017/18 school year I will be teaching U.S. History, Government, and Economics. I have been employed by Jasper County Schools for 7 years and I honestly can say that I have enjoyed each and every one of those years. I have made some great connections with the students and the staff at RHHS.
I am also a history professor at the University of South Carolina Beaufort (USCB) campus and I am entering my second year of instruction at USCB.
I currently teach U.S., and European history at USCB, and will most likely add Modern Asia to my course offerings in the summer of 2018 .
My family and I relocated to the “Low Country” from Tennessee where I earned my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, TN, graduating Magna Cum Laude from the Social Science Department. I majored in History, minored in geography and education. I also hold a Master’s degree in history from the Wayland Baptist University, Plainview, TX.
I look forward to working with the 2017/18 students and I am certain that we will obtain great successes together.
Hello to all,
This is your March 19th, 2018 update for all of my US History students:
As I said in class and as I posted on my website last week, we are rapidly moving towards the end of the school year. With that said, I am providing to you a very special website. This website is created by Tom Richey and it shows a series of informative and useful lectures and videos to help you prepare for the state sponsored End of Course Examination.
So without delay here is the link: www.tomrichey.net. Once you go to his site, follow the prompts and click on US history EOC. Pay close attention and you will find that Mr. Richey is providing to you everything that we have covered in our US History class.
So, get busy and get involved in the process.
Parents, this is a great time for you to become involved in your student(s) academics as you can and will be able to ask specific questions to them as you too engage in watching these lectures.
I’ll be back next week with more exciting information and another surprise link or two that will help you pass the 2018 South Carolina History End of Course Exam, which if you did not know will be issued on May 24, 2018.
