Week of September 8th

Dear Gators,

This week, you will be taking your second quiz on Friday. This will cover the Maya, Aztec, and Inca along with the "Expanding Horizons" notes that we took in class. The moodlehub is not working very well. I am going to try and find an alternate by next week. I'll post it in next week's update.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you,
Mr. Taylor

Welcome to a New School Year

Dear Gators,

Welcome back to school. I look forward to a great year of learning history. We will be doing many exciting things with our history and with technology throughout the school year.

This week, we will focus on the procedures of how to have a successful and productive year in my class. Please remember that your Rules and Procedures sheet is due by Wednesday. Also this week, we will begin by looking at some of the different theories of how the Early Americans arrived.

Throughout the year, we will follow the county's curriculum map. Here is the link to that information. I hope you find this helpful.

If you have any questions, please email me at Again, I am looking forward to a great year :-).

Civilization IV Project Blogspot

Dear Students,

This is where you will respond to your experiences of playing Civilization IV. I will ask the question and then you need to type a response equal to a short response on the FCAT. About 4-5 sentences. Finally, then please respond to three of your classmates' responses. I hope you enjoy this :-).

Mr. Taylor

First Question:

What were the advantages and disadvantages of having a government based on despotism?

Dear Gators,

This week we are QUICKLY going through the unit for Manifest Destiny. We analyzed the famous painting about Manifest Destiny (the one with the angel) and discussed what this concept meant and why it was important to our history. Students are completing the Cornell Notes study guide from Tuesday through Thursday. The unit exam will be Friday.

If you have any questions, please let me know at

Thank you,
Mr. Taylor
