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.  

Monday, January 2, 2017

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" tab.  We will be going over this, but make sure you pay attention and review to help you study.
  • NC Released Test Prezi:  Found under the "Links to Prezi" tab, this has actual test questions for you to review.
  • Daily MC Quizzes:  During our review, you will take multiple choice quizzes daily to test your knowledge of what we have covered as well as your ability to answer MC questions.  Eliminate wrong answers and look for clues to choose correct ones.  You have been doing this since 3rd grade!  These can all be found under the "Tests/Quizzes" tab.
  • CrashCourse World History:  CrashCourse is available on Youtube.  A great way to cover major concepts in 10-15 minutes
  • CrashCourse World History 2:  Still John Green. Still World History.  Taught by concept and not by topic.
  • Quizlet will have lists of terms, concepts and ideas that you can find by doing a search for "World History exam review".
