Global History Regents Study Group
Tues, November 15th – December 16th from 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 fdiscover 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
