This is a social science course with emphasis on Central America, South America, Africa, East Asia, and Oceania. The focus of the term is an in-depth study of geography and cultural diversity.  The class will analyze each country’s relationships with those around them, as well as with the United States.  Current events will be researched and discussed daily.


1. Follow directions the first time given.
2. Be respectful of others
3. Be in your assigned seat when the bell rings
4. Come to class with all materials
5. Remain in your seat until the teacher dismisses you
6. Have respect for school property


My job as an educator is to make sure you succeed as a student and as a person.  However, the majority of your success is up to you!  If you find yourself struggling in my class, please do not hesitate to speak with me.  I am available for class-work help before or after school (by appointment).  If possible, I can also give help during lunch.

End Note:

I look forward to being your instructor for the term.  I hope to challenge and enlighten you.  It is my goal to make sure you succeed, so work hard.  This class will go very smoothly if you keep up with class work, pay attention in class, and make an effort to learn!

                         Have a great year!
