Syllabus for Mr. Cap's

       U. S. History Class

Welcome to my history class. This is going to be a great school year and I'm looking forward to teaching you. 

Supplies needed: Loose-leaf notebook paper or spiral notebook, pen or pencil.

This class will cover topics found in US History as well as current events taught from a Christian perspective. Mr. Cap tries to use the latest Internet and computer access advantages a teacher can have and a free software platform called Schoology to complete homework assignments, quizzes, and tests.

Grading:  I have written 106 US History lessons that will be covered throughout the year.  I cover 3 or 4 lessons each week.   Lecture notes will be required to be taken and maintained throughout the year in a spiral notebook.  Students may use those notes for a quiz each Tuesday.

No Homework outside of class all worksheets and quizzes will be completed in class

Students are required to take  notes in class every day I lecture.  All of the notes are also posted on the Schoology website so absent students can keep up.  Class notes will be collected at the midterm, and end of each quarter for a test grade.  Some quarters there will also be a midterm exam and a nine week exam given.
