Degrees and Certifications:
About Me: I have been teaching history for over a decade. Before I taught history, I also taught musical theater and have worked with EPIC under the direction of Melissa Friedman to infuse the arts into a rigorous curriculum that keeps our students engaged while learning to expand their reading and writing ability.
About the Class- Welcome to U.S. History. In this course, we will cover topics from Anti-bellum America (pre-civil war years) to the Modern Era. Students can expect to read, role play, discuss the reading and write about each topic we cover on a daily basis.
Homework: Please check your student’s Schoology page daily. Any incomplete class work assignments that need to be finished for homework, tests and graded assignments as well as teacher to parent correspondence will be posted under announcements.
Class Work- No late work (HW, class work) will be accepted after the unit test is administered. Unit tests, Essays and assignments with a star next to it can be made up at any time.
- Late or absent students should come in quietly and check the resources bin to get the work they’ve missed.
Exams- All tests will be cumulative, that is will encompass topics from September to the unit we are currently covering. Quizzes will be timed allowing only one minute per question. Exceptions will be made for those with extended time only.
Projects- Projects vary but often require the student to do their own research, cite their sources and write about a particular topic in history in either an essay form, brochure or research paper.
