Mr. Groll, Social Studies

I have taught at C-S since 2005. While at C-S I have taught U.S. History, Government, Economics, Psychology, Sociology, AP English, 10th Grade English, 7th Grade Social Studies, 6th Grade Social Studies, 7th Grade Theater, and Learning Lab. Before coming to C-S I taught 6 1/2 years at Renaissance Alternative H.S. in Howell, MI, where I was the Social Studies dept. chairman. I also substitute taught for a number of years at Holly, Fenton, Lk. Fenton, and Linden schools.

My teaching style is continuously changing to meet the expectations of the state, district, and students needs. I would describe my teaching style as a combination of teacher centered and student centered lessons. My lessons have changed recently to be more engaging for students.

Outside of schools, I participate in several outdoor activities including fishing, hunting, golf, and skiing.

Advice for Climax-Scotts Students: Do your assignments when you are given time to do them. Make up your work as soon as you can.
