This one-year course examines societal development from the Renaissance to the present with an emphasis on emerging ideologies, expansion of empires, growth of nations, and an increase of global interdependence. Students develop an understanding of current world issues and relate them to their historical, geographical, political, economic, and cultural contexts. Instructional practices incorporate integration of diversity awareness including appreciation of all cultures and their important contributions to society. The appropriate use of technology is an integral part of this course. This course fulfills the World History/Geography and the Arts/Humanities credits required for high school graduation.

 

Student Supplies

Students are expected to have and maintain the following supplies all year:

  • 1” or larger three ring binder
  • Lined paper (in the binder)
  • Spiral Notebook (preferably more than 100 pages)
  • Pen or Pencil (no overly light or shiny colors that are difficult to read)
  • Optional supplies: Ruler, Scissors, Glue

 

Cellphone Policy:

  • I do allow cellphones in class but ONLY during independent practice or when I ask students to look up information for me, perhaps during note-taking or our daily warm-ups.
  • In the case of inappropriate cellphone use:
    • 1st offense = I will give a verbal warning for the first offense.
    • 2nd offense = If the usage continues I will give another warning but also contact home, preferably by phone.
    • 3rd offense = If the problem then escalates from there then I will confiscate the device and return it to the student at the end of class.
    • 4th offense = If the problem continues, then I will write a counselor referral, confiscate the phone until the end of class, and contact home.
    • 5th offense = If it continues past this step or the student gives me attitude / resistance in complying with all previous steps then I will confiscate the device and it will be given to the dean's office and the student will be written up with a deans or referral.  I will also contact home preferably by phone.

About Student Passwords:
1. Student has already been using a school computer - Password for google will be their AD password.
2. Student has never logged into computer - Google password will be birthdate, YYYYMMDD
Recommend to student to log into computer first to reset password so Google will match.
3. If student logs into Google first with birthdate password and then logs into computer later, Google password will change automatically to new AD password.
