Ms. Hussain

Hello students and parents,

My name is Ms. Hussain. I am very excited to be partnering with you as your Minnesota Studies teacher for grade 6 this year! The 2020-21 school year marks the beginning of my second year at Farnsworth Upper Campus. Our school is a place where students love to learn and teachers love to teach. We all work hard to see students succeed beyond their own expectations. Farnsworth is a close knit community that I am proud to have been a part of for over a year now. The community is supportive and willing to step forward to assist us in achieving academic growth of all our students. As an educator I am honored to teach the students of Farnsworth community.

I've been teaching for almost seven years. I am in my eighth year now and loving it! My interests outside of school include spending time with my family and friends, gardening and reading. I love to watch cooking shows and try new recipes.Digging and working in my yard is extremely relaxing for me.

I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience in this upcoming year. However, I cannot do this without the help of you, the parents. We are partners in the learning process.

Standards Addressed:

Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards in English Language Arts (2010), Minnesota K-12 Revised Academic Standards for Social Studies (2011)

Course Description:

MN Studies features history as the lead discipline but the focus includes geographic, economic and civic understandings. Students study Minnesota history and its government, placing the state and its people within the context of the national story. They engage in historical inquiry and study events, issues and individuals significant to Minnesota history, beginning with the early indigenous people of the upper Mississippi River region to the present day. They examine the relationship between levels of government, and how the concept of sovereignty affects the exercise of treaty rights. They analyze how the state’s physical features and location of resources affected settlement patterns and the growth of cities. Drawing on their knowledge of economics, students analyze the influence of a market-based economy at the local and national levels. They learn about the unique role Minnesota played, and continues to play, in regional, national and global politics.
