A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”

    Important things to remember:

  • Before every test a study guide goes home to assist your child
  • There is a major project every 9 weeks, this counts as a test grade
  • There is no daily homework in world history only to study for the tests and completing projects

(Reminder students do not bring their notebooks home for fear of being lost, but you have full access to our textbook online.)

We start Imperial China after the holiday break.  Hope you had a wonderful holiday season!
