History course provides students with a comprehensive, intensive study of major events and themes in
world history. Students will begin with a study of the earliest civilizations worldwide and continue to
examine major developments and themes in all regions of the world. Concepts and skills in problem solving
and critical thinking are developed in accordance with the Georgia Performance Standards. These may be
found at the Georgia Department of Education website www.doe.k12.ga.us .

BYOD: We will be participating in McEachern’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). Students are encouraged
to bring their own technology devices to school to assist their learning experiences in the classroom.
Students will be given certain periods throughout class time to use their device. This is not required for
every student. If you decide you want to participate in BYOD, parents and students MUST complete and
sign the permission form THAT WILL BE PROVIDED AFTER THE CLASS BEGINS!
Classroom Expectations:
All classroom rules are based on common courtesy and responsible behavior. The policies of the
school as outlined in the student handbook will be strictly enforced. In addition to said policies,
the following will be expected in this class.
1. Be prompt! This applies to being in class and seated when the bell rings as well as
being on time with assignments. I follow the McEachern High School tardy policy!
2. Be prepared! Have textbook, notebook, paper, pen, etc. with you every day. Time will
not be provided to study for tests or to complete homework so be prepared.
3. Be polite! Common courtesy is expected at all times. We are all in this together!
4. Be respectful! This applies to respectful behavior towards teachers, staff and fellow
students. Please be respectful of each other’s property, space and feelings in behavior
as well as speech.
STUDENTS: PLEASE KEEP THIS IN YOUR Notebook/Folder/Binder.
Cell phone use in the classroom is for academic purposes ONLY. Appropriate times for
the use of electronic devices will be discussed. IF YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICE IS BEING
USED AT AN INAPPROPRIATE TIME, MCEACHERN POLICY WILL BE ENFORCED. If I see
said devices anywhere on your person during exams, I will assume you are cheating and
you will automatically be given a grade of zero.
