I am looking forward to an exciting year of World History with your son or daughter. I know that with your help and support your child will have a memorable and knowledge filled year. Each semester consists of four units. During each unit I will incorporate all the different learning styles with my teaching techniques. Class always begins with a journal assignment which will prepare the class for the lesson. The lesson is where we do a variety of things such as role play, engage in a simulation, work in groups, debate, discuss, watch a video clip, analyze documents or take notes.
You can help your child's progress by asking him/her what they learned each night at the dinner table. Also ask them questions on world events. If you have any questions e-mail me at Kenny_Donovan@chino.k12.ca.us . I look forward to working with you.
