Class Overview

Hello parents and students! In class this year we will be very technologically integrated. Every day the first 10 minutes of class will be used watching a current events video at the front of the classroom using a projector. This will be used to keep up our knowledge of events around the world and history as it is being made! I will take our class throughout the year with many web-quests, internet-inspired lessons, and in class lectures.

Tests, Quizzes, Homework, and Other Assignments

We have pre-determined designated days for every test, quiz, or other large in-class assignments. These dates are on your syllabus, but I also have placed them below in case you lose it. We will have homework nearly every night using various sources from our textbook, to online web-quests, to lecture-inspired questions.
