Course Description: World History Studies is a survey of the history of humankind. Due to the expanse of world history and the time limitations of the school year, the scope of this course should focus on "essential" concepts and skills that can be applied to various eras, events, and people. The major emphasis is on the study of significant people, events, and issues from the earliest times to the present. Traditional historical points of reference in world history are identified as students analyze important events and issues in western civilization as well as in civilizations in other parts of the world. Students evaluate the causes and effects of political and economic imperialism and of major political revolutions since the 17th century. Students examine the impact of geographic factors on major historic events and identify the historic origins of contemporary economic systems. Students analyze the process by which constitutional governments evolved as well as the ideas from historic documents that influenced that process. Students trace the historical development of important legal and political concepts. Students examine the history and impact of major religious and philosophical traditions. Students analyze the connections between major developments in science and technology and the growth of industrial economies, and they use the process of historical inquiry to research, interpret, and use multiple sources of evidence.

                                                                                     

Instructional Philosophy: Students will be expected to meet the course goals and be able to comprehend essential concepts in the development of world affairs. Students will also be expected to show how history has an effect on the modern world. Students will on some occasions work on small groups on projects that are designed to help them become cognizant of social situations and analyze decisions made by past humans. Students will also need to work independently on research in order to acquire the background necessary for the evaluation of historical data. Students will be assessed through a combination of group work, individual completion of work assignments, projects, and examinations.

Classroom Policies and Procedures

There are certain routines and procedures established to assure that the classroom runs smoothly and that the educational process of all students is secured from disruptions.  All students must follow these policies.

 

  1. Seating Arrangement:

    Mr. Corona assigns student seating and reserves the right to change that seating if problems occur.   

  2. Tests/Retests:

    During a test, do not give the teacher any reason to believe you are cheating.  This not only results in a zero, but you could also be issued a referral to the office and a parent conference requested.  If you have a question during a test or quiz, please raise your hand.  Any communication during a test or quiz will result in a zero.

    Retests are always available for students who did not pass a test.  Retests must be requested by the student.  Retests and missed tests are given before 1st period or after school.

  3. Daily Work:

    Daily work must be turned in on the due date and at the beginning of the period (before the tardy bell) in its designated location!!!

    The policies for cheating also apply to daily work assignments!

  4. Absentees/Tardy: 

    Students must follow the school tardy policy.   

    If you are absent when an assignment is due, it must be turned in the day you return to class.   When absent, you are responsible for getting the notes or missed assignments.

  5. Classroom Neatness:

    Please respect our classroom by not throwing papers, keeping your desk and immediate area clean, and placing all trash in the garbage.

    Be courteous to our custodians by leaving the classroom organized and clean.

  6. Entering/Exiting the Classroom:

Students need to be in their seats before the tardy bell rings.

Assignments will be on the overhead when you arrive, please be prompt in finishing or interpreting the vocabulary, or political cartoon, discussion with your peers is acceptable, a few will be called upon to turn in your journal for me to read and you to answer.  If you choose not to write in your journal it will be considered as a lack of participation and may affect your overall grade.

All books should be placed under your seat before you leave and all papers picked up off the floor.

THE TEACHER DISMISSES THE CLASS, NOT THE BELL!!!
