Global Studies 10: Grades for this course are derived from homework, quizzes and tests. Approximately 50% of a quarter grade is homework and quizzes and the other 50% are from the tests; except for Quarter One, when we complete five weeks of ninth grade review. Students may not turn in late work following the chapter test for any chapter that we complete in tenth grade.
Participation in Government: Grades for this course are derived from homework, quizzes, tests and projects. The projects are converted to either a quiz score or test score depending on their difficulty and/or amount of work requirements. Students will not be able to turn in late assignments once we have taken the test or quiz for that topic. Students must complete ten current event assignments and number each as they are turned in. Students may not turn in a late current event after the next one is due. A reminder that this course is required for graduation.
Economics: Grades for this course are derived from homework, quizzes, tests and projects. The projects are converted to either a quiz score or test score depending on their difficulty and/or amount of requirements.

Homework Responsibilities and Assignments:
Each student is expected to be responsible for their homework!! At the tenth grade level each student should write down their assignment, have the necessary materials to complete the assignment and bring that assignment back to school.
Global Studies 10
Textbook: World History
For each chapter the students are expected to define their vocabulary terms, complete a work packet and highlight a note packet. It is imperative for students to actually read the chapter. Very few students can complete all of this work during the school day, as a result, you should see your child doing some work at home!
Students have completed their vocabulary terms and quiz as well as their homework assignments from the Guided Reading packet on the Industrial Revolution. We will be reviewing on Halloween for our chapter test and taking the exam on Thursday, Nov.1st. This will be the last major grade for quarter one. We will immediately begin work on chapter 24.
Participation in Government
Textbook: Magruder's American Government
This course does not officially begin until the end of January/beginning of February.
Students have completed Chapters 1, 2 and 3. We will be starting chapter 4 on Supply by the end of this week. Students are expected to complete the vocabulary terms for each chapter as well as a chapter question packet. Students will take vocabulary quizzes as well as a chapter test. Some additional homework will be assigned as well. There is a chance that we will host an Economic forum during quarter two, if time permits.
