World History

Course Overview: Social Studies is a way to learn about the world. It draws on information from five fields of learning: geography, history, economics, government, and culture. Each field looks at the world from a different angle. I look forward to working with you this 2012-2013 school year.

restroom time
Restroom Time
  • Restroom and Drink Breaks
  • Quietly raise your hand with only your thumb showing. Wait for me to make eye contact with you; once I make eye contact, you can be sure I know that you need and you can put your hand down.
  • I will dismiss you when I can (remember no breaks while I am teaching, or while reading the chapter as a class. Go directly to the restroom or drinking fountain and return promptly. If you choose to go anywhere else, you are choosing to lose the ability to go again. I will report the offence to Mr. Nava as a truancy.
  • You will be given a textbook to keep at home. This book is to be kept in an area where you will always know where to find it, preferably an area where you will study.
  • Any damage to the book will result in a fine, for part, or all of the book. The book costs approximately 65.00. You will check out your book, list the wear and tear, as well as the number of the book. You may only turn back in this book, no other number for credit.

We will read and know the Skyview handbook rules that can be found in your planner.

Students who are absent from school because of an excused absence will have the same number of days that they can make up their work. It will be the responsibility of the student to gather their assignments and turn it in on time. Homework and class assignments can be accessed via the school’s web site. Unexcused absences will have the same number of days to make up the work, but will receive a deduction in points.
