Week One: Hello and Intro

Image
I am extremely excited to have you in my class this semester! I look forward to delving into World History and learning about all the amazing people who have walked this Earth before us!

But...before we can do any of that, we need to get some housekeeping things out of the way.

Please begin the class by completing today's Daily Question.  On a blank sheet of paper, write the question (in this case the beginning of a sentence) and then complete it.  Keep up with this paper, because we will be adding to it and turning in for a grade on Friday.

I told you to check here to see what you will need to work on if there was no school.  Today, I want you to be safe, and enjoy your day.  When you return, we will continue with our review in attempts to best prepare you for your NCFE next week.
This week, we will begin our prepping for the NCFE you will take in a couple of weeks. It is important that you are active in your studying for this exam.  It counts toward your final grade, which should be very important to you.  We have been tasked with learning the entire history of the world in less than 90 day!! It is nearly impossible, so there are many things we have not covered in depth (or at all).  Below are links to documents and resources you can use to study.  Some of these will be covered in class, but you need to take it upon yourself to study on your own time!

Global History and Geography Prep Pack:  A great resource that covers in outline form many topics we have not gotten to in order to give you a little knowledge of what we are talking about.World History Cram Packet:  I have given each of you a booklet to keep with you during class and to use as a study guide.  Take notes and don't lose it!World History EOC Review Prezi: Found under the "Links to Prezi&quo…
