WORLD HISTORY CP
MRS. S. LOPEZ
956-271-1600 X 4103
Conference time: 8:05 - 9:35


EXPECTATIONSAll students are expected to be totally prepared upon entering the door on a daily basis for the lessons that are to be taught.  Students are expected to fully participate in each lesson and to expand on the knowledge that they may already possess from previous years in school or outside reading.  In World History we will be covering a tremendous amount of information and each student is expected to keep up with the pace of instruction.  Questions are welcome and encouraged as it will help me to know if there is a concept that you are not getting.  This class is important and you need to get as much out of it as you possibly can.  Remember you will be out in the world in just a few years!
