REVIEW for New York State Regents Global History and Geography examination in June
Due to the new Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS), all course instructors will be required to infuse their curriculum with more reading and writing. To that end, here is a look at some of the methods/strategies I will utilize to ensure reading and writing is addressed:
Tests and Quizzes: 60%
Homework and Participation: 40%
In June, students will take the Global History and Geography Regents examination. As I stated before, this exam will cover BOTH Global 9 AND Global 10 material, therefore independent study and review is imperative. I will provide students with a list of review activities/resources, so they can begin this process early. The exam consists of (3) parts: PT I: 50 multiple choice, PT II: Thematic Essay, PT III A: Documents (Short Answer questions), PT III B: DBQ Essay using the content from PT III A. The grade received on this examination is a large component of the course grade; therefore performance on this exam is critical to both passing the course and securing Regents credit.
