Welcome to the 2019/2020 school year! Below is a copy of the syllabus that your student will receive on day one in my class. I would like to point out a few things on the syllabus and mention some additional things you should know.
We will be studying medieval periods of history. We will start in Europe with Charlemagne and will progress through to the black plague. Next, we will focus on the Chinese medieval period, and the end of the year we will finish with the study of the Japanese medieval era.
You only need to have your students bring a pencil or a blue or black pen, and lined paper to class. A folder to bring work back and forth will be helpful but is not necessarily required.
Your students need to be aware of what is going on in the world, and your opinions as parents are very important. Watch the news or read and discuss news from your favorite newspaper. Explain how you feel about what is going on in the world. Your student is already required to watch or read about the news every Thursday night, but there is so much happening that will affect their world that more time spent will be beneficial.
