INTRODUCTION 

World
History
is
rich
and
vibrant‐‐‐ and
controversial.

It
is
the
controversies
of
history
that
foster

critical
thinking
and
analysis.

Althoug h
facts
are
important,
memorizing
details
is
not.

We
need
to

be
able
to
think
critically…and
history
can
help
us
do
that. 

This
course
is
a
requirement
for
all
sophomores.

GRADING
POLICY 

Semester
grades
will
be
calculated
based
on
various
assessments.

 Tests
and
quizzes
will
be

objective
and/or
essay
format.

Semester
grades
will
be
broken
down
as
follows: 

Tests/quizzes/essays 

Final
Exam 
 







20% 

Homework 
 

40% 
 

35% 
 

Attendance/behavior





5% 

The
following
grading
scale
will
be
used
on
all
assign ments
(note:
grades
will
not
be
curved): 

A=90% 

B=80% 

C=70% 

D=60% 

Small
extra
credit
assignments
will
be
offered
for
only
those
students
who
have
completed
all
of
the

required
work
for
the
year.

DAILY
PREPARATION 

Materials
needed
 everyday:

writing
ute nsils,
folder
and
notebook.

You
do
not
need
to
bring
your

textbook
unless
told
to
do
so. 

TAKE
NOTE! 

Students
are
required
to
take
notes
during
class.

Students
ne ed
to

bring
a
 three­ring
binder 
for
their
class
notes
and
handouts.

Much
of

the
material
covered
during
the
course
will
not
be
found
in
the
book,

so
note‐ taking
is
essential.
In
addition,
notebooks
will
be
collected
at

least
once
a
semester
for
a
grade.

Only
those
students
with
the
correct

notebook
and
format
will
be
given
any
credit. 

HOMEWORK 


Homework
will
be
given
on
a
regular
basis.
Some
homework
will
be
collected
in
class
and
failure
to
 complete
these
assignments
will
result
in
a
5 0%
reduction
for
the
first
day.


Thereafter,
any
 homework
assignment
turned
in
will
result
in
a
zero.

All
assignments
are
due
in
the
period
that
the
 student
attends,
not
after
school
or
later
in
the
day.

Computer
problems
will
not
excuse
an
 assignment
from
being
late.

If
your
printer
breaks,
email
me
the
assignment
or
write
it
out
by
hand


and
turn
in
that
version
as
a
temporary
measure.

In
order
to
be
eligible
for
extra
credit,
all


assignments
must
be
completed
regardless
of
whether
or
not
points
are
issued.




It
must
be
noted
that
students
who
fail
the
class
do
so
because
of
lack
of
effort
and
failure
to
turn
in

assignments.

Failure
to
complete
homework
assignments
can
have
a
detrimental
affect
on
grades,

therefore
don’t
fall
behind‐‐‐ get
your
assignments
in
on
time. 

MAKE ­ UP
PROCEDURE 

All
assignments
will
be
given
in
advance
via
a
weekly
schedule
that
will
be
posted
in
the
class
and

online — therefore,
there
is
no
excuse
for
a
late
assignment.

If
you
are
absent
the
day
before
an

assignment
is
due,
that 
assignment
is
still
due
if
it
was
assigned
earlier.

If
you
miss
a
quiz
or
a
test,

you
have
one
week
to
make
up
that
test
with
me
on
you
own
time.

If
you
fail
to
make
it
up
within

that
week,
the
test
will
be
counted
as
a
zero.

It
is
your
responsibility
 to
make
up
the
test
on
time;

you
will
not
be
reminded.

Please
note,
that
the
make ‐ up
test
will
most
likely
be
different
from
the

one
taken
by
the
class.

 

Anything
missed
due
to
absences
is
your
responsibility
to
acquire.

Even
the
notes
taken
on
the
day 

of
your
absence
you
will
be
responsible
for,
so
make
sure
to
borrow
the
notes
from
a
friend
in
class

and
copy
them
down
into
your
notebook. 

CLASSROOM
BEHAVIOR 

Students
are
expected
at
all
times
to
follow
school
and
classroom
rules.

Remember,
5%
of
your 

grade
is
attendance
and
behavior. 

YOUR
EDUCATION 

Education
is
a
fundamental
part
of
human
growth.

In
fact,
learning
can
be
enjoyable ‐‐‐ if
you
let
it.


Don’t
be
afraid
to
ask
questions.

Be
curious.

Be
creative.

Above
all,
take
pride
in
your
work
and

don’t
fall
behind.

Showing
that
you
care
about
your
learning
and
your
grade
can
go
a
long
way. 

Good
luck
and
let’s
have
a
great
year!!!!

Quotes
from
Dead
Guys

“Education
is
learning
what
you
didn’t
even
know
you
didn’t
know.” 

Daniel
J.
Boorstin

“Who
so
neglects
learning
in
his
youth,
loses
the
past
and
is
dead
for
the
future.” 

Euripides

“Anyone
who
stops
learning
is
old,
whether
at
20
or
80.

Anyone
who
keeps 

learning
stays
young.

The
greatest
thing
in
life
is
to
keep
your
mind
young.” 

Henry
Ford
