Grading Policy
40% Test
60% daily/quiz's


American History is a fast paced class that will cover a lot of information. I usually will teach the whole class period which means homework. Students should never say they have nothing to do in history. Reading is a must, and students should set aside 20 minutes a day to read or review their chapters. Quizzes will be giving at least once a week.
