6th Grade World History Syllabus

6th Grade World History

Mr. Reynolds:
2017-2018 World History

Welcome to 6th Grade! I look forward to having a great school year with all my students.  We will be working hard, learning as much as possible, and having fun!

  • You are 100% responsible for your actions.
  • Be on time! Be prepared.
  • Complete all work to the best of your ability
  • Respect yourself and others.
  • Listen to the person who is speaking.
  • Come into class Quietly and ready to learn.

Grading System

           20% -homework/class work
30% -quizzes
50% -tests/projects

There will be approximately 4-5 tests/projects each nine weeks. Test and projects are the best indicators of what you have learned so please prepare!

Homework Policy

We try to keep all homework assignments in each academic class less than 30 minutes per day, but this excludes special projects.
All completed=100
Two thirds completed=80
Half completed=50
Less than half or none completed=0.

Homework is the responsibility of the student in 6th grade. Part of completing the homework assignment is bringing it to school and to class.

History Field Trip

During our 3rd quarter, we will be studying the Middle Ages and Medieval Time period. As part of this unit, we will visit and participate in the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament.
Absent Policy:
For every day a student misses, he or she has that many days to turn in the missed work. It is the responsibility of the student to find out the missed assignment and turn in the work. A “1” will be entered into the gradebook for any missed work due to absences, and will be changed if the assignment is turned in on time. If you are absent, please check each teachers blog for assignments.


Grades will be posted to RenWeb which parents have access to anytime. Please check your student’s grades periodically. To set up an account, or for any questions regarding your RenWeb access, please see the Guidance office.

Teacher Blogs:
Each 6th grade teacher has a blog that is updated with assignments, important upcoming dates such as tests/quizzes, or other important announcements. This is meant to be a resource for the students but any assignments that are assigned in class but not on the blog are still the responsibility of the student.

My blog address is:

 “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”
