Welcome Parents and Students of the 2018-2019 year!
I will be teaching TEST PREP CLASSES FOR THE US and Government REGENTS EXAM coming up in January 2019 for periods 6 and 7 and SUMMIT ACADEMY from 8:30 to 9:15. This is a half year course. In order to pass the regents students must be in class on-time and everyday! For some of you that have already taken the test last June/August and did not pass it, remember, YOU MUST PASS EXAM if you want to graduate! This is a test prep class, it will be different from a regular history class. Assignments and classroom activities are improtant to complete in order to pass the REGENTS. It will be more intensive and focused on the US Regents Exam.
I will also be teaching US History period 4. This class will focus on US history and government from the pre-colonial era to the present. Homework is very important for success in this class. HW is like practice, it must be done in order to get better at something. Students must also be on-time and in class EVERYDAY! Students will take the US Regents Exam in June of 2019. In order to pass class they must pass the exam!
I will also be teaching a Latin and Carribbean Studies Class period 8. This class will focus on the history of Latin America and its complicated relationship with the United States. We will be reading, watching, and listening to many different perspectives. Homework and being on-time and present is important in order to succeed in this class.
I am available for call back Monday through Thursday 2:46-3:00pm.
