Welcome to my web page
Note: log on to schoology.com for class assignments and chapter outlines.
I teach Advanced World History (9A) during Period 1 and Advanced Placement Human Geography during Period 3 in Rm 245. Students in my class may contact me at any time during the day, preferably before Period 1 in Room 245.
1) If you are in the AP Human Geography class, you should purchase your Princeton Review "Cracking the AP Human Geography Exam (2015 or 2016 edition)" by the end of December. All Marble Notebooks with your article summary are due on Thursdays. Your marble notebook should have a short summary of the article (no more than 3-4 sentences), but the bulk of the analysis should include a minimum of three world history terms if you are in the world history class (Period 1) or human geography words if you are in the Period 3 class. You should provide examples from the article and give as much details as possible.
2) Chapter Outlines must be handed in on time. They are generally due every 2 weeks.
3) The key to gaining college credit in World History or Human Geography is to study hard and have fun as you learn. The work must be done. Review the chapter outlines and notes before every test. You should also consider forming study groups and study together with your colleagues.
For AP Human Geography:
Please encourage your child to study as hard as they can. The AP College Board exam for Human Geography is administered in May 2016. Students will have to attend after school review classes in January, February, March, April and May. There are two mandatory practice exams scheduled in April and May. Please make sure your child attend the review classes and take the practice exams.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Check the Schoology.com website for more information on both classes
