PAP World History Newsletter
Cycle 1, Issue 1
Thank you all who subscribed to the PAP World History Newsletter. I am very excited for this school year and cannot wait to see how your students grow. I hope everyone was able to go over the syllabus with their student and get a better feel for how my class will work. I have revamped my teaching methods this year and will be focusing on kinesthetic learning, collaboration, and high rigor activities.
The first week of classes was focused on get to know you activities coupled with expectations for the year. Students were able to work with partners and teams and were able to get to know everyone within their class. We ended the week with timeline practice and categorized personal events.
The start of the second week marked the start of curriculum. We began our journey by focusing on four ancient civilizations. Students were given two different reading packets and have taken quizzes on both. In class, we were able to dissect the reading and expand our knowledge through simulation and critical thinking.
Grades will continue to be updated through the next few weeks and you will begin to see how your students first nine weeks will shape up. I hope everyone has an excellent Labor Day Weekend! Please email me with any questions.
