Mr. Darrah B. Densmore

Greetings! I am excited to teach AP U.S. Government and Politics, AP Microeconomics, and VirtualSC World Geography Honors in my fifth year at Aiken High. I also serve as head coach of the three-time defending district champion Aiken High School Academic Team.

As a native South Carolinian, I am a proud product of our state's public education system. I have taken a non-traditonal route to the head of the classroom via a legal and corporate career path, but it is now my privilege to be doing all I ever really wanted to do; namely, to make a postive impact upon the lives of young people and share with them my deep respect and appreciation for learning.

I am best reached via email. I check it regularly and endeavor to return all inquiries promptly.

I look forward to enjoying another great year at The High!

NOTICE TO AI STUDENTS

Moodle will be the primary learning management system we will use to complete the VirtualSC curriculum. That system includes most assignments, due dates, and course materials. Grades will be posted in PowerSchool as usual, and additional enrichment materials and assignments will be offered via Schoology from time to time.

In order to access our live meetings via Microsoft Teams, you will need to be a member of our AIKEN iNNOVATE World Geography Honors team. I have added everyone on my PowerSchool class roster to the team manually, but a few folks still might be left out. Please email me if you still need to be granted access. IMPORTANT: you must be logged into your Microsoft/school account in order to join our team and participate in our live sessions.


NOTICE TO HYBRID STUDENTS

Course materials and assignments will be provided in class as well as on our course Schoology page. Grades will be posted in PowerSchool as usual whether an assignment is handed in or submitted electronically via Schoology.
