Welcome to NSHS and Welcome to World History!
I am so excited to begin this journey with you at North, and to return "home"!  Many. many, MANY years ago, I sat right where you are as a student at North Stanly High School, and as fate should have it...I am BACK!  This is such an amazing opportunity and I cannot wait to become a part of your cherished high school memories, just like so many awesome teachers are part of the reason I am doing what I do everyday!
This year, we will be learning all about the history of the ENTIRE world in roughly eighty days.  It will be busy, fast paced, but full of great stories and events that shaped our world into what it is today.  
The primary source for all class information will be found in Canvas, but this website will give you an idea of what we will be doing throughout the semester.  If I can ever help you, please don't hesitate to email me.  I will do all I can to make your transition from middle to high school as seamless and success…

Week 17: Exam Review

Image
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…

Week 16: WWII and Assessment

This is your LAST vocabulary list of the course!!! When we return from Christmas Break we will be in full blown review mode, so there will be no more vocabulary!!!
This week, you will only have eight words to actually complete, but you will have a cumulative vocabulary assessment on Friday from Weeks 14-16.  You have done great on these words, so this should be easy.  I have included the Quizlet for all the words below so you can study this week.  This week's words are all over the place, but they address the end of WWII and a few words we missed along the way.
Be sure to write the definition, a sentence, and draw a picture for each word.
