Welcome to Mr. Schneck's Social Studies Courses Class Page.  I teach US History, American Government, and Economics.  I have been teaching at SDEMC since 2010, coming directly after graduating from SDSU with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science.  I am currently getting a Masters in Education in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Literacy Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington.  
My hope is that by the end of the year, students will be able to:


  • Demonstrate and strengthen their ability to write formal essays/research papers.
  • Strengthen their note-taking skills.
  • Compare/contrast/synthesize and analyze information.
  • Exercise critical thinking and communication skills in formal and informal discussions.
