Welcome to Mr. Davis' Website. I can be found in room A-113 period 1 and A-207 periods 4-8 . My mailbox is in North House and my e-mail is email@example.com as well as firstname.lastname@example.org. This is going to be a great year filled with learning activities, gaining perspective of the world we live in today through the people, places and events which have and continue to impact its development. This year we will be working on skill development including critical thinking, reading for higher order knowledge and writing a variety of essential styles of essay including DBQ, Change over time and comparative. We will also be learning essential research skills worthy of the historian and the important and valuable skills of evaluating bias, perspective and distinguishing fact from opinion. I look forward to our journey and feel free to drop me any notes or items which can help improve this site or our class. I encourage both parents and students alike to utilize the myriad sources available in both 9th and 10th grade.
I have been asked to post my Powerpoints and review sites and practice. I hope this works so that you can learn with the help of some of my preparation. For WHAP kids, don't forget about Strayer's accompanying website http://http://bcs.bedfordstmartins.com/strayerdocutext1e/default.asp#t_597721____ for important multiple choice, vocabulary and powerpoints.
Please feel to provide any input so that I can better serve your educational needs.
