    "The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think ---

    rather to improve our minds. so as to enable us to think for ourselves,

    than to load the memory with thoughts of other men"

    Course Description: 


    The World History course will ultimately allow students to use this knowledge to understand and engage with the world as collaborative and productive global citizens who are knowledgeable of why history matters in a twenty-first-century world. This course will begin with a brief overview of ancient history, but with a key focus of study from the mid 13 th century to the present.  The desired outcome of this course is that students develop relevant enduring understandings of current world issues and relate them to their historical, political, economic, geographical and cultural contexts.  Students taking this course will broaden their historical perspectives as they explore ways societies have dealt with continuity and change, exemplified by concepts such as civilization, revolution, government, economics, war, stability, movement, and technology.

    Eng IV Course Description:

    Course Content:

    The North Carolina Standard Course of Study focuses on reading, writing, speaking, listening and language. In order to meet the standards, we will have frequent homework and classwork reading assignments from the textbook and supplemental novels, as well as non-fiction pieces, in-class and out-of-class writing assignments and essays, daily discussions on writing and reading assignments, vocabulary study and grammar study, and frequent assessments. Students will be asked to share their writing with their peers during the drafting stage of compositions or share some of their favorite passages from drafts of their essays in class. Attendance and participation in class discussion is imperative to our study of themes and issues found in British, American and European literature. This class is work, military and college-preparatory; academic standards are of the highest degree.
