A History of the United States
The American History curriculum is designed to motivate students to interact with history, give them the tools to read and understand history, inspire them to become active citizens, and make interdisciplinary connections. The themes that we will be covering over the course of the year are democratic ideals, citizenship, impact of the individual, diversity and unity, immigration and migration, expansion, America and the world, science and technology, and economics in history.
District Policy for Grade Recovery:
Seventy-five percent of assigned work for the quarter must be completed for a student to be eligible for grade recovery.
After the first quarter, all late work is subject to grade reduction.
- Writing assignments, i.e., extended responses and essays may be recycled to improve the quality of writing and grade.
- E-mailed assignments will NOT BE ACCEPTED.
- Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
SECOND SEMESTER POLICY CHANGE…
THE PRE-ASSESSMENT IS NO LONGER COLLECTED NOR WILL IT COUNT AS A GRADE. It is the responsibility of the student to utilize this tool in preparation for test and to assure a successful outcome.
