7th Grade World History
COURSE INTRODUCTION & REQUIREMENTS
Medieval to Early Modern Times - Holt, Rinehart and Winston
Students will be focusing upon the period from approximately 476 A.D. to 1800 A.D.
Students will recognize the interrelatedness of geography, economics, culture, belief systems, and political systems within history. They will develop an appreciation of the multicultural and multiethnic dimension of our society and the contributions made by groups within the scope of study. Students will strive to improve their research, reading, writing, organization and presentation skills. I use an interactive notebook which has been extremely successful.
Methods Of Assessment
Grading will be based on written assignments, quizzes, tests, projects, homework, and class assignments. Students and parents can check grades online at any time using individual passwords. I grade on a straight percentage.
90 -100% = A80 - 89% = B70 -79% = C60 - 69% = D59 - 0% = F
Homework will be assigned Monday--Thursday with occasional Fridays.
Late work will not be accepted. Students with an excused absence will be given one day per absence to make up work. It is the responsibility of the student to find out what was missed from my website. I do not give extra credit.
Students are responsible for coming to class every day prepared with a blue or black pen, pencil, pencil sharpener, one notebook (8 1/2 X 11, 100 sheets), planner, classwork and homework. In a container students should have scissors, small stapler, glue sticks, and colored pencils (12). Please email me with any questions or concerns at email@example.com.
