My name is Carlos J. Diaz and I teach Social Studies at Hialeah High School. The major purpose of this page is to help my students to study for their quizzes and exams (lecture notes), to find information for their projects, research papers, film analysis, book reports, and other assignments, and to get extra information for a deeper understanding of History, Politics, Economics, etc. . This is a virtual classroom, a connection to the best websites associated with the Social Studies and the Humanities; it is open 24/7 and it includes all what we do in our class; it is also a bilingual place, designed to help limited English proficient students with a Hispanic Heritage. This site includes materials for Gifted Education and Advance Placement courses. Here, you can also find resources to learn about History of Cinema, Philosophy and World Religions. Teachers will find lesson plans, instructional strategies and other resources related to their work and parents can use it as a tool to help their children.  Welcome, enjoy your visit and come back again. Please, let me know about anything wrong you find in this place of learning, that you may make yours too; help us to improve it. Thanks.
