Welcome to Mrs. Williams'World History Class!
Welcome to Mrs. Williams' History class! We are dedicated historians, investigating the mysteries of the past in order to better understand our present and prepare for the future! We'll be learning all sorts of interesting things this year, from the struggles of early humans to the legalist laws of the Chinese emperors. Come on in and brace yourself for an adventure!
As we begin instruction from a distance this year, please be sure to check your Google Classroom regularly. There will be links to readings, videos, and projects. We will walk this road together and navigate the bumps as a team! Ready for adventure?!

Office Hours: a time during class for students to work on/return to their learning targets, complete vocabulary, and discuss grades/assignments with the teacher.
Title Page: 3 pictures, colored, that represent the material from the unit. A caption (2-3 sentences) explaining the image.
Notebook Check: organization check for the unit. Counts as a grade. Sometimes called Unit Check.
