SYLLABUS FOR WORLD HISTORY I - MR. BURGESS

WORLD HISTORY I (Prehistory to AD (CE) 1500) COURSE OF STUDY
A High School Credit Course

 First nine weeks- We will analyze the early developments of human civilizations, including such civilizations as the Egyptians, Mesopotamians, early Chinese, and Indus Civilizations of early India. We will continue our study of the early Hebrews and other settlers of the Fertile Crescent, and the origins of Judaism. We will also be covering the Persians, and the origins of Hinduism and the caste system of India.
 
Second nine weeks- We will study how the ancient Greeks developed and how their civilization affected Western civilization today. We will be learning about the Romans, including their accomplishments as both a republic and an empire, and its ultimate fall. This includes the study of Rome and the origins of Christianity. We will look at the split of the Roman Empire, the beginnings of the fall of western Empire and the beginnings of the Byzantine Empire.
  Third nine weeks- We will finish the fall of the Roman empire, the development of the Byzantine Empire and of Islam. We will be discussing Western Europe from 500-1000 A.D., including the further development of Christianity, feudalism, the Crusades, and the emergence of the major powers of Europe, and the developments leading up to and including the Renaissance and Reformation.
  Fourth nine weeks- We will examine the trade routes and the empires of Africa and the Far East. We will conclude with a study of the civilizations of the Mayas, Aztecs and Incas. We will be intensively preparing for the World History SOL test. We will wrap up the year with various activities related to what we have learned throughout the year.

Grading Policy:

 My grading policy follows the Bedford County Schools grading policy. There are two types of assignments - Summative and Formative. Summative is 60% of a student’s grade and formative is 40% of a student’s grade. Formative assignments are tests, quizzes, assessments, projects, research paper, “some” individual work, etc. Formative assignments are Vocabulary Activity, Review Worksheet/Study Guides, read and answer assignments, thinking maps, map activities or exercises, completed notes, "most" handouts, etc. Students are expected to turn in all assignments (work) on the date it is due. Students who turn in assignments (work) after its due date but before the “zero day” will receive a maximum of 65%. After the “zero day,” the assignment earns a permanent grade of 0. Assignments are due the day of the Summative assessment (test) on that topic. Example; all Egypt assignments are due the day of the test on Egypt. The “zero day” is the last day of the nine weeks (quarter.) The Vocabulary Activity is due the day of the quiz because the quiz is on the terms/vocabulary for that unit. A test counts 2 times. Most Summative assignments are work that was started in class and may or will need to be finished at home. Any assignment can be made up even if the student was not absent – late work is accepted. However, it may have the 65% penalty if not turned in by the day of the test on that topic. On the progress reports Omits and nulls must be made up unless the task is a "Video questions." I have no way of allowing a student to watch a video unless it is during the scheduled class. They will remain Omit and are not calculated into the grade. Anything not made up by the last day of the nine weeks will become a zero that is zero day. This includes tests and quizzes.
Mid-term (1st Semester) Exams and Final (2nd Semester) Exams can only count 10% of the Semester grade and will be listed separately on the Report Card. They will be 5 % each of the final grade. The student is exempt from the Final /2nd Semester Exam if they pass the SOL test.
Extra Credit is always available. Extra credit will be offered as a choice for winning the “Pyramid Game” and other educational games done in class. I allow for extra credit reports, projects and /or assignments as long it is about an event, a document, a concept, or person we have studied or are studying.  I have extra worksheets for extra credit. The number of extra credit reports and projects is the student’s decision.

Letter Grade                         Number Grade (Percent - %)

A                                                         90-100

B                                                          80-89

C                                                         70-79

D                                                         60-69

F                                                          0-59

* Students are rewarded with a choice of extra credit, candy or fruit snacks for winning games played in class.

 Classroom Rules for Mr. Burgess
All students are expected to follow the FMS and classroom teacher’s rules.  These rules are clearly stated in the FMS Family Handbook, Bedford County “Code of Student Conduct” Book and listed here.

 BE ON TIME – Use the time between classes to go to the bathroom and get to class. You cannot go to your locker after every class. Get what you need for more than one class in the morning before going to Homebase. What is needed for after lunch classes should be obtained after 4th period.
BE PREPARED – Bring materials needed in the class room. Examples: pencils, red pen, paper, (and other supplies as needed) and completed assignments to be turned in or graded in class.
BE RESPONSIBLE – Do the right thing, write down the homework at the beginning of class, raise your hand and wait to be called on by the teacher to ask a question or make a helpful comment, use time in class for study or reading, study for tests, etc. Don’t go to your locker after every class; go to the bathroom during lunch. Take make up quizzes and tests between 8:30 and 8:50 in the morning, during lunch, during SOL Support/Connections, or if you ride one of the last busses between 3:35 and the 2nd bus bell. When you miss class ask your teacher what you missed at the end of class, or during SOL Support/Connections, or the End of the Day Bus Dismissal time – not at the beginning of class and not during class. Do your make up work. Look at sharp school.
STAY ON TASK – Do what it says on the board under “I will”. If you are not sure what you are to do look on the board at the “I will”. Work on school assignments until the bell rings.
SHOW RESPECT TO EVERYONE – show respect to the teachers and other students, don’t touch others property without permission, don’t talk while the teacher or others are talking, raise your hand to ask a question or make a comment.
NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES:
Warning
Lunch detention (silent lunch) or move to another seat or temporary removal from the classroom.
E-mail or phone call to parent
Removal from the classroom to PLC and/or phone call or e-mail to parent or conference with parent.
Phone call or e-mail to Parent/Guardian and possibly after school detention or PLC
In-school conference with the Teacher, an Administrator, Parent/Guardian, and Student
Written Referral and meeting with Administrator. Consequences issued by Administrator. (examples are ISS, after school detention, etc)
 POSITIVE CONSEQUENCES:
Receive praise and thanks from teachers and administrators
Gain the respect of teachers and peers
Gain self-confidence
Learn the content, earn good grades, pass the mid term and SOL test
Student choice of seat

8th Grade Code of Discipline

I.   Discipline is necessary for the efficient administration of education and the safety        of faculty, staff, and students. A. The eighth grade will follow a uniform code of disciplinary action which acts in  accordance with county and school policy as set forth in the Student Code of  Conduct. B. The Uniform Code of Discipline (UCD) comprises several steps: 1. Lunch Detention (3x) or Tardy to Any Class (3x) a. After a student accumulates 3 tardy slips from any class they will  receive a SLD (Silent Lunch Detention) b. After a student accumulates 3 SLD slips from any class they will  receive an ASD (After School Detention)  2. After School Detention: Parents notified via Disciplinary Notice  a. Disciplinary Notice should be signed and returned by date specified on  slip 3. Parents notified after the second assignment to After School Detention that the  next step will be a disciplinary referral to the administration. 4. Referral to the Administration      C.  The UCD is to be used for the correction of behavior that disrupts the educational             process. It is not meant to be used to punish students for forgetting textbooks,              pencils, not raising their hand etc.. Those incidents should be handled by the             individual teacher. II. Expanded explanation of the steps of the UCD A. Lunch Detention 1. Lunch detentions will be held in designated eighth grade teachers’ classrooms             on a rotating basis. The teacher assigning a lunch detention will inform the  student of the location of the detention at the time of the assignment. 2.  Students assigned lunch detention will get their lunches from the cafeteria and             report immediately to the detention room. Students should ask the cafeteria                staff for a styrofoam tray as they will not be permitted to return to the cafeteria     to return red trays. 3. Students who report to lunch detention late (more than seven minutes through  the lunch period) are considered to have not served detention and will be  assigned an additional day of detention. Students who are in school but fail to  appear for an assigned lunch detention will be assigned an additional day of  lunch detention. 4. Students who fail to appear for two detentions in a row will be assigned an    after school detention.             5. Any questions about SLDs should be addressed with the assigning teacher.         B. Tardiness 1. Tardiness is one of the most frequent and disruptive of student behaviors. 2. A student is considered tardy to class when they arrive to class after the tardy  bell has rung. If the student has a pass from the prior classroom teacher,  school nurse, guidance counselor, or an administrator, the student will not be  considered tardy. 3. If a student is going to be tardy because a teacher held him/her in class then  they must have a pass signed by that teacher. Otherwise this situation is  treated the same as any other case of tardiness. 4. When a student is tardy they will be given a tardy slip to fill out. Tardy slips  will then be passed on to the 8 th grade discipline coordinator. When a  student has accumulated a total of three tardy slips, an SLD will be  assigned. 5. Any questions about tardy infractions should be addressed with the assigning  teacher.   C. After School Detention 1.   The position of 8 th grade discipline coordinator is held by Mrs. Fairchild. 2. When a student is assigned an ASD, he/she will be given a disciplinary notice         to take home to the parents. The disciplinary notice will show the date the        ASD is assigned, the reason for the assignment, the room in which detention        is to take place (if known at the time), and the time of the detention. 3. ASD’s will last from 3:50­4:50 PM on Tuesday, and Thursday. D. Referral to the Administration After a student has been assigned two ASD’s parents will be contacted via phone,  or disciplinary report, and informed that the next disciplinary step for future  infractions will be an administrative referral.  E. Exceptions to the Above Policy             It is recognized that there will be times when it becomes necessary for reasons of    safety and to minimize classroom disruption that a student will be removed from  the classroom in an expedient fashion. These students will be accompanied to the        office by a staff member or an administrator. F. Disciplinary Probation Throughout the school year students may need to be placed on disciplinary                                                     probation. Students can be placed on disciplinary probation for repeated  violations of school rules. As a result of being placed on disciplinary probation,  students may not be able to attend school functions such as school sporting  events, SCA sponsored activities, or grade level field trips. Depending on  behavior, student probation can be lifted. Disciplinary probation will be  administered by Mr. Nazigian.
