World History is a required course for graduation from Beverly Hills High School.  It is a survey course that covers history from the ancient beginnings of democracy to the Enlightenment then through the present day. This Core class will be taught in conjunction with Ms. Marrs' English class so that students gain the benefit of an integrated approach to the courses and consistent collaboration regarding the necessary skills to succeed in an ever evolving world.
This site is always construction due to student comments, so please be patient and always feel free to give feedback.

Self Evaluation:

After each test, I ask that students evaluation both their preparation and performance on the test honestly. This process should help students both evaluate and improve their study habits. Worth 6 points in the test category.

Please answer the following questions in complete sentences and honestly, then hand in to your teacher.
1.   What was the raw score on your test? Were you surprised by the raw score on this test? Why or why not?
2.   What types of questions did you have difficulty with? 
3.   What strategies did you use to study for this test? Do you feel that these strategies worked?
4.   What do you plan for improvement on the next test?
5.   Did you take advantage of the strategies that Mrs. Fine offered?
6.   Are there any other comments that you would like to add about your performance on this test, and/or progress in this course?
