Welcome students and parents to Honors World History and Geography! It is my honest attempt to turn every one of you into a history buff this year. Even if you are not a fan of history, it is my goal to help you find events in the past 800 years that interests you. This course will be rigorous and demanding, but also full of interesting activities. We will examine the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of history this year, and will relate the past to the present day. We will utilize many different types of learning in this class, as well as honing our reading, writing and researching skills. Get ready to go "around the world in 180 days!"
Please see the presentation we went over at the parent meeting on Sept 15.
