United States History

Course Description:

This course will enable you to better understand how the past has influenced the development of the United States. Your input is essential in this class! Share your ideas.

First Semester:

We will start with the events that helped make the US the most powerful and influential country in the world.

Please be seated by the time the bell rings. Stay in your seats until the bell rings or I excuse you.


Grades will be based on the total number of points you have earned divided by the total points offered for one nine weeks period, which will equal your percentage.

Example of a possible percentage/letter grade scale:
A= 100-92
B= 91-83
C= 82-74
D= 73-65
F= 64% and below

(+ and - will be assessed)

Late Work:

I will not accept school work that is one day late without a good excuse. Consistently trying to turn in late work will earn you a zero.

Unexcused absence(s):

If you decide to skip class or school, you will not be allowed to make-up any missed assignments or tests. You will earn a zero for the day!

Excused absence(s):

You are responsible for asking other students about possible assignments you may have missed and the dates the assignments are due. I will not remind you to hand in your work, so be responsible!

Sleeping in class:

If you can not stay awake in class, you will be asked to leave the room and report to the office. Do not be disrespectful!

Books and notebooks:

Always bring your books and loose leaf paper to class each day. Please be careful not to lose or damage your books because I am obligated to ask you to pay for them.
