Classroom practice
Classroom Practice

  • The course is challenging.

  • We want students to analyze the consequences (both good and bad) of human decisions.

    • Example: What were the consequences of Japan’s decision to attack the United States at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941?

  • Students will be challenged to recognize the relevance of history and think like historians.

  • Students are expected to be prepared daily and will be held accountable.

  • The students are asked to analyze primary and secondary sources for guided classroom discussions, including non-print sources.


Assessments
Assessments

  • HEAVY emphasis on writing!

  • Homework assignments and daily preparation

    • Note cards, reading quizzes

  • In class writing activities

  • Notebook essays

  • Document analysis

  • Historical fiction/social history paper

  • Student prepared presentations

  • IB and Advanced Placement-type assessments

  • Content quizzes

  • Unit Tests

  • Class participation


Expected outcomes
Expected Outcomes

  • Although this is NOT an Advanced Placement course, I strongly recommend the students in my Advance level US 2 course to take the AP US History exam which is offered in May ‘15.

  • Since the course is challenging, it’s expected that students will become more responsible and independent.

  • Students will improve their verbal and writing skills.

  • Critical thinking and analytical skills will improve.

  • The students will be challenged to make decisions and defend them using logic, reasoning and evidence as support.
