Global History Regents Study Group
Tuesdays, November 15th – December 16th
4:00- 5:30 pm
This class is intended for High School students who need to pass the Regents Global History Exam. Dr. Mounkhall, who has been a teacher for over 30 years, will offer four sessions in the fall and spring where he would teach students the skills necessary to pass this test.
He will not be teaching the actual history so much as:
- basic skills – how to read political cartoons, maps, charts, graphs
- reading skills – specific vocabulary, verbs and nouns that are used in these tests
- writing historical arguments – how to write an outline or rubric
- documents – to read the questions before reading the actual documents to discover the answers
Students will create a notebook to refer to after the workshop is over.
There is a maximum of 10 students, so please call to sign up: 845-338-5580

Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker by Jennifer Chiaverini
“In a life that spanned nearly a century and witnessed some of the most momentous events in American history, Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley was born a slave. A gifted seamstress, she earned her freedom by the skill of her needle, and won the friendship of First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln by her devotion. A sweeping historical novel, Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker illuminates the extraordinary relationship the two women shared, beginning in the hallowed halls of the White House during the trials of the Civil War and enduring almost, but not quite, to the end of Mrs. Lincoln’s days.”
