Seventh Grade World Studies

Tips to Understanding World Studies

  1. This is a writing and researched based class; we analyze the geography, history, culture and modern challenges of the Middle East, Africa, India, China and Russia.
  2. Students need to come with a charged Chromebook each day; I encourage students to have at least a section in a binder or folder to keep paper assignments (and to take home graded rubrics). 
  3. If you notice a zero in Power School your student has either (a) Missed School or (c) Did not complete the work in a timely or correct manner. I will enter a message that explains this zero in the assignment comment. However, please encourage them to talk to me to get the needed clarification on the zero.
  4. I am available to meet and work with students from 2:30 to 2:50PM. 
  5. Students can redo quizzes,  projects or tests; if they are absent they can turn in class work upon returning and recieving clarification for missed work; they should sign the Taking Ownership form in my classroom when finished. Expectations will increase for each redo.


What is going on in our class?

Currently in class we are getting used to routines and expectations. Soon we will start learning about the Middle East.
