World History – Middle Ages to American Revolution

Records

Keeping records is important to me.  I don’t have time to write it all out each day though.  I need to be able to simply check off and mark when a lesson was completed.  I like to keep this updated online and print off at the end of the year, and if that’s you, then I’m going to provide an online form here for keeping track of your movement through these lessons—a form that you can print at the end of the school year showing your accomplishments in a clear, concise way.

If you prefer to keep paper records, I will provide a printable form here as soon as I have formatted all the lessons.

These forms will give you a clear picture of the topics you covered and when you covered them.  This could be helpful in displaying your student’s progress to your husband or for other reporting.

Grades?  Tests?

I do not grade or test my 2nd graders regarding history.  I simply record what we have explored, and they receive a Pass or an Outstanding or an “A” for their work with me.  I observe their completion of the activities or their response to discussions about the topics to make sure they clearly understand….but nothing more.

The grade is really on me as the teacher.  Was I consistent in my commitment to expose my students to history, other cultures, and basic social studies?
