Welcome to a year of hard work and, hopefully, attractive challenges!
The subject we will be studying together is History, world History. Senior 1 is the first year of a three-year preparation for IGCSE that is the international exam you will be sitting for in Senior 3.
Our course will have 4 periods a week. For each class you will be expected to bring your History book and an A4 folder with 2 divisions: 1) Recalling Historical Data. 2) Graded Work. At the same time, you will need a category in your blog that will be “History” and a subcategory within that category that will be “Essay Writing”.
Tests as well as blog assignments and paper assignments will be posted in the class Calendar.
To round things up, I would like to share this Ted Talk with you which I believe throws some light on why we study History.
What do you think? You can leave your answers as comments to this post as well as any questions you may have.
Special congrats to the comments posted. I have found them very deep and absolutely relevant.
