Syllabus for Mr. Cap's

                History Classes

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

Supplies needed: Textbook, loose-leaf notebook paper or spiral notebook, pencil,

This class will cover topics found in the textbook 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.

Grading:  I cover a chapter or a ½ chapter of the textbook each week, and students will be required to read the textbook before the lessons are taught throughout the week. You may take notes over the reading assignment and use those notes for a quiz each Monday. Reading notes and class notes can be used for each Tuesday quiz.   Isn't that cool ?

Homework: Check Mr. Cap's lesson plans on the website for homework assignments.  There will be one written assignment each week due Wednesdays. These assignments are very easy and should take about 15-20 minutes to complete. Ten percent will be deducted for each day the assignment is late, up to fifty percent.

Students are required to take  notes in class every day I lecture.  All of the notes are also posted on the VCS 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.
