The 3rd Quarter ended on March 13. Students have the opportunity to improve their grade if they wish by following the instructions provided and reading the email that was sent to students on their school Gmail account on Monday, March 30. If you are happy with your 3rd Quarter grade, then you need to take no additional action at this time. Information about 4th Quarter assignments will be coming to you soon.
-I have exempted all assignments from students that were missing from 3rd quarter - with that being said an exemption does not count against you and does not hurt you - rather makes each of the other assignments count more towards your final quarter grade - it may be in your best interest to complete these assignments
-We will not be completing the Genocide Podcast 😔I am afraid it will be too difficult to coordinate asynchronosly. See below for information about the Podcast Planner assignment. We will still be covering the genocides just in a slightly different fashion.
These are the assignments that you can complete to help your grade this quarter
-Complete any assignment that is from Quarter 3 with a 1 (all 1s are exempt per school policy but you can do these to improve your grade -if they hurt your grade I will not count it)
-Complete the Indivudal Genocide Podcast Planner - if you do not it will be exempt
-Assignments from March 16-27 will be counted as extra credit
Remember this is a first for all of us - let me know if there is anything I can do to help you!
This is a one-year survey course of world history. The course will cover history from 1500 a.d. (c.e.) to the present, with emphasis on Western Europe. Geographic influences on history will continue to be explored, but increasing attention will be given to political boundaries that developed with the evolution of nations. Significant attention will be given to the ways in which scientific and technological revolutions created new economic conditions that in turn produced social and political changes. Noteworthy people and events of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries will be emphasized for their strong connections to contemporary issues. Since this is a survey course, we will be studying each time period in relative detail but will not go into any one area in great depth. The purpose of this course is to provide you with a working knowledge of world history.
