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 this year, please be sure to check Google Classroom. There are additional resources available for all learners including videos and optional readings that may help you understand the topics better.
It would be most helpful for me if student and/or parent would fill out this very quick 'getting to know you' survey. My goal in asking you to do this is to better serve all members of our community and ensure that all students feel welcomed and respected.
1. Historian's Handbook (Building the skills of the discipline)
2. Early Man

the most successful students will come prepared with:
Spiral-bound single subject notebook (at least 100pgs).
Lots of regular pencils
Wish List: I am always in need of white paper, Kleenex, and disinfecting wipes. Any donations would be greatly appreciated, but not required.
Please note that due-dates are flexible based on how the class goes. Project and quiz dates are more likely to be pushed back than brought forward.
