Hello student! And welcome to my North and South America history class! I will be your teacher through the whole year, Mik!
In this class, you will learn about the history of the nations of North and South America. I expect much out of you all, seeing as this is a high school level class.
There will be much homework for this course, mainly reading assignments. There will also be a pop quiz once a week over the readings I assign. There will two major essays to complete during this course, the details of which I will go into more in depth when the assigned dates come closer. There will also be a test every time we finish 5 chapters in the textbook.
I know that this material can be dull, so we will try to make them more fun with lively discussions and other things I will explain more in depth later. So I hope you enjoy this class!
Hello, welcome to the Asian Studies course at Fandomly High. I am your instructor, Ms. Comix.
Asia is the largest continent on Earth, home to countries that have very different cultures and customs, although they are all connected by a long history of inter-national relations. We will be examining specific aspects of the long, long history of Asia, which will include political history, social history, religion/folklore, foreign relations (with each other and the rest of the world), and current affairs. Due to the size and age of these cultures and the length of the academic year, I am sorry to say that we cannot study every single aspect of Asian society and history in this course (although some of you may be leaping for joy at this news). To prepare you for what lies ahead, we shall be paying attention to these topics, most of the time:
Major events in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Southeast Asian, and South Asian history from ancient times to modern day
Major religions/philosophies such as Confucianism, Buddhism, Daoism, Shintoism, Sikhism, Islam (due to its popularity in Southeast Asia), and other stories of folklore
Asia's role in the current world economy today, including the manufacturing industry
Areas of clear Asian influence upon Western culture, including popular media
Group Presentation: 15%
Midyear exam: 25%
Final Essay: 25%
Participation - attendance and involvement in class discussion. Tardiness will be taken into account for this aspect of class.
Quizzes - In each semester, I shall have two surprise quizzes. As long as you finish readings on time, you will do fine. Think of them as "a graded opportunity"!
Group Presentation - in three person groups, a chance to utilize creative talents and skills to teach the rest of the class about a particular cultural holiday. More detalis to come.
Homework - worksheets and short-form writing assignments. This is my way of knowing you are keeping up with the readings.
Midyear exam - Self explanatory, a test over everything taught in the first semester. More details to come.
Final Essay - a student-chosen thesis on a blanket topic chosen by the instructor. Given in place of a final exam. More details to come.
Please analyze the Avatar: The Last Airbender television series and explaining, in a detailed, nuanced and organized essay, the various ways it reflects Asian culture.
Here are a few suggestions for topics:
how bending techniques emulate real Chinese martial arts
connections to traditional Asian philosophy in the spiritual aspects of the Avatarverse
art style, including architecture and clothing
the relationships of each of the four nations in comparison to historical international relations between countries
the use of Chinese/Japanese/other language used in the series, including names.
If you wish, you may create your own thesis, but you MUST have it approved by me before you begin writing.
Be sure to use pertinent sources and cite correctly, using the Chicago footnote format. Interviews with Bryke counts as a source. Fandom opinions do not.
Only canon ships are allowed to be referenced (though I don't know HOW you'd be able to throw it in), because anything merely suggested is not sufficient enough for a good basis of argument.
I actually want this SINGLE SPACED, size 11 font, Calibri or Times New Roman, with name, student number, date, and course code in the top left hand corner. Give your paper a title, but title pages are unnecessary. Staple it.
On your first class you will need to gather in pairs which will remain in place for the rest of the december. Our first activity will be to dissect a group of specimens that commonly known as Steve. There will be a mini test at the start of the class, so be sure to study the handouts that I have left with the secretary. Should students fail the mini-test they will be required to catch a live specimen to study it later in the semester.
Final project for this class is to do a report of the rare species known as Headmaster Hima's activities. Additional information will be given during the first day of classes.
For extra credit, you are to produce a photograph of this rare specimen. For me to erase your failing marks, I require for you to catch the specimen and make him pay us our salaries.
In this class, you will study the properties of different chemicals. There will be a mid-term and final exam about the properties of said chemicals.
In Katurtle's chem class, there will be a lot of explosions! You have been warned...
wear goggles at all times during a lab
be prepared to get a heart attack
We will be studying Chemicals and their properties
Stay calm during an explosions
clothing may get damaged
Hot boy's clothing will get damaged...
In the next class, we will also be testing out chemical reactions on terrible OCs as well as Steve, Frank, and such.
WE WILL HAVE A LAB IN WHICH STUDENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO MIX CHEMICALS IN ORDER TO MAKE AN EXPLOSION. THIS NEWLY ACCUIRED THING WILL BE USED TO TAKE OUT STEVE. THE PERSON WHO CREATES THE BEST EXPLOSION THAT TAKES OUT STEVE GETS AN A+!
As a Japanese teacher, the first 10 to 20 minutes of the class will be a quiz about Kanji, (Or Hiragana or Katakana if you have started). If you don't get a 70% or above, you will have to take it again in the next lesson.
For the first lesson we will learn how to introduce ourselves and learn the basic Hiragana (there will be no test on the first lesson). We will also learn some Japanese culture after that which will be about food (there is more to that than Sushi).For homework, you shall revise the Hiragana you have learnt and recite it for next lesson.
My class project will be about Japanese culture. It can be anything from Anime to Kimonos to the Language. You have to write at least half of the parts in Japanese, and if you can write all of it in Japanese, you will get extra credit. You can choose the style you want to write, such as a poster or an essay.
We can also watch some movies as well. I would suggest Princess Mononoke or Spirited Away, since both of them have Japanese elements in the.
See you for the next lesson everyone!
Iced, the Japanese Teacher
