Welcome Fall 2019 US History.

Semeka Samuels Contact email is as following: semeka.samuels@cobbk12.org.

Welcome to United States History!  You are taking on a challenging course at CHS, but it is also extremely rewarding. You will develop your ability to analyze and interpret historical evidence, the ability to express your understanding and analysis in writing, as well as your time management and reading comprehension skills. We will aim to have everyone master the EOC exams in December. Student responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

Reading: You will read multiple historical sources in order to gain the basic facts and knowledge necessary to proceed with other activities and readings. These sources include textbook, primary source documents, and other selected readings in history.

Discussion/Lecture: You will participate in this activity in two important ways. From time to time, you will present material to the class. Also, you should always be prepared to take an active role in discussion.

Written Work: You will be expected to complete several DBQs (document-based questions) and critical writing assignments throughout the semester.

Tests: Standards-based exams will be utilized to help you prepare for the EOC test. They will be comprised of multiple-choice questions and multiple-select questions modeled after the EOC exam. It is important to keep in mind that tests questions will refer to all the information that has been discussed not just the information for the particular unit.  Quizzes will be assigned every Wednesday and Chapter tests every Friday.
