I am glad you found your way here. Take a few moments to look around. Find out about the courses I teach, and check out some cool links.

World History

This course will cover the history of the world focusing on the following areas: Classical Greece, Ancient Rome & Early Christianity, the Byzantines, the Middle Ages, the Church and Reform, the Renaissance, the French Revolution & Napoleon, the Russian Revolutions & Stalin.

While historical events themselves are unique, they are often driven by common forces. These recurring themes include power and authority, revolution, religious and ethical systems, cultural interaction, empire building, and science and technology. We study these themes to show that around the world and through time, humans have confronted similar obstacles and have shared similar goals.

Student Expectations

Students will come to class prepared with their text, notebook, writing utensils, and completed assignments. Students must behave in such a way that is conducive to a classroom, a learning environment. All students' rights to an education must be observed. Students must respect school property and the property of others.


Make-up work is the responsibility of the absent student. Students must see me before class, after class, or during break for their missing assignments. Test and quizzes must be made up during my prep if the student is available or before or after school. Quizzes not made up one week after the absence will be recorded as a zero.

If work is not passed in on the due date, students will have only one additional day to pass in the work for credit. The late work will only receive a maximum of 80%.

Ms. Angwin on a good-hair day

Did you know Elizabeth I had alopecia?  Late in her reign she took to wearing wigs and
heavy make-up in part to disguise her hair loss.  Her eyebrows had to be drawn on.
