U.S. History Disclosure
Miss Monson B210
Welcome to U. S. History. In this class we will cover the history of the United States from
colonization to modern day, with the emphasis being placed in the history of the 20 th century. We will
cover the events and people that have helped shape this country as well as covering the major
political, economic, and social events that have occurred in the United States. We will be doing group
and individual projects throughout the year.
1. Students will have a general knowledge of the history of the world.
2. Students will understand the cause and effect relationship as it relates to history.
3. Students will learn to use critical thinking skills.
4. Students will learn and practice communication sills and public speaking skills.
Each student will provide his/her own notepaper. I strongly suggest loose paper and a folder. Each
student should come on time and prepared for each class, with a pen/pencil, paper, assignments that
are due, and any text they are given. Points will be given for these things.
100-94 A 79-77 C+ 63-60 D-
93-90 A- 76-74 C 59-0 F
89-87 B+ 73-70 C-
86-84 B 69-67 D+
83-80 B- 66-64 D
I expect work to be handed in on time. I also expect all work to be neat and legible. If not,
the assignment will receive a zero and cannot be made up. Grades will be determined by
completion of assignments and proficiency of skills.
If the student misses class, it is his/her responsibility to ask for the assignments and make
them up. Students will receive 50% on late assignments. Assignments from the unit will NOT
be accepted after the Unit Test or Project.
Please note: If I do give the student an opportunity to receive extra credit, the student
cannot have any missing assignments showing. If there is a missing assignment, the extra
credit will not be awarded.
Students need to be in class ready to work before the bell rings. Students will show respect for their
classmates, their teacher, and themselves. Disruptive behavior, disrespect, fighting, and cheating will
NOT be tolerated. Cell phones and other electronic devices may not be used in the classroom.
They will be taken away and sent to the office at first offense. Students who do not cooperate
with a sub will be given a U in citizenship and may be transferred from the class. Fremont High
School policies and procedures will be upheld. Your student will be excused from the classroom
setting, if citizenship expectations are not met.
We will be watching a movie that will enhance the lessons on specific historical events.
