United States History

Course Overview: This year in United States History, we will be exploring the country’s history from 1865-2017. The era encompasses the country from the end of the Civil War all the way to present-day. Be ready to work hard, pay attention, ask questions, and discuss topics in class. I expect a lot from you all. I know we will have a great year together!

Grades: The majority of grades in this class come from daily work. Daily work can be described as book work, worksheets, activities, and quizzes. I also grade on in-class participation often! This is why it is crucial to pay attention, ask questions, and discuss topics in class—some your grade depends on it! In this class, you will have “bell work” daily. It is important to keep up with your bell work because it is part of your participation points. Tests are worth 200 points and daily work is worth 100 points.

PS: I do give bonus point opportunities—BUT...please do not rely on these opportunities.

GRADING SCALE: 100-90=A, 89-80=B, 79-70=C, 69-60=D, 59-0=F

Expectations: 

1. Be prepared! Books, pencils, paper, bell work, notebook, etc.

2. Put your cell phone away during class time. There will be times we use our cell phones in class…BUT I better not see it unless I tell you to get it out for a class activity.

3. Respect each other and me! It’s easy to be kind!

4. Each student will receive 2 hall passes per semester. Unless it is a huge emergency, this is what you need to go to the restroom.

5. Each student will receive one “free” assignment pass each semester. The rules for use are printed on each pass.
