Welcome to Va. and U.S. History classes with Ms. Lynde

I have created an additional page of supplemental U.S. History postings. Items such as Research Paper directions, Class syllabus, Animoto registration, Supreme Court cases, Territories Map, Review Materials, etc. have been moved to the U.S. History Extras Page. This will allow me to post weekly homework in a more efficient manner for your access. U.S. History Extras




May 26- June 9th

In this last phase of US History we will be focusing on more images. We will review famous photographs for what they reveal in accuracy as well as historical content. We will be watching videos; again analyzing some for historical accuracy.
But most importantly, for your grade at least, is there will be one last project which will count as a test grade. Please find the details listed below.

We will watch Glory - complete an accompanying worksheet


Thursday May 28th - June 5th
Introduction of project. We will watch This Century videos and complete worksheets. We will watch Dear America, Letters From Vietnam.

Please Note- due to excessive delay in making up absent work, all students are hereby notified they are expected to make up their work within 3 days of return unless other specific, written, and signed plans are made.





Time is moving fast! All daily agendas are subject to sudden change as we cover material for the SOLs.

Please take note of the review cards which have been available since the beginning of the academic year. They may be found on the US History Extras page linked above or from the menu on the left. Now is the time to print, cut out, and use those flashcards at every available moment.

September 9-19, 2008

This week we begin our examination of the early colonies. Serious consideration (as in it will likely be an essay prompt...) need to be given to the following issues:
The method and motivations behind colonization tended to vary based on the sponsoring country. How did the methods and motivations behind Spanish and English settlements differ? Specific instances illustrating motivation and methods are expected.
Hard labor was an important element of American culture. What type of forced labor systems existed in America before the European explorers arrived? What was the labor system employed by BOTH the Spanish and English during early settlement? How did the forced labor systems of the Native Americans and the Europeans differ?
We will continue into chp 3 where we will examine the roots of economic/social differences among the colonies as well as the causes and effects of what would be the seeds of revolution.

September 2- 5, 2008

The first week of school will largely serve as an introductory period though the following assignments are due as indicated.
In class work Wed & Thurs 9/3 & 9/4: Review of the explorers, Renaissance, etc.
Due Thursady 9/4:
Please respond by Friday the 5th of September with your comments/reflections on the following 4 points:
  • 1. Are you a Robin, Eeyore, Piglet, Owl, or Pooh? These categories tell you which part of the brain you tend to use more. Make sure to specify whether you are left brain dominate, right brain dominant, whole brain favoring one side or the other, or just whole brain altogether.
  • 2. Where you surprised by this survey or do you think it an accurate reflection of your learning style?
  • 3. What do you think will be the hardest thing for you to learn in this particular course? It is important that you tell me the why... why will this be the hardest task for you.
  • 4. Give one example of something specific you have had to learn and how you might learn it best. Example: I tend to be whole brain favoring the left. If I had to learn a complex math formula I would have to write it down, neatly, organized, perhaps color coded then have indented examples (bullet format) underneath the formula. Then I would have to transfer the formula to an index card and repeatedly look at that information in order to learn it for a test or quiz.

  • Make sure you finish with your first and last name so I can give you credit for your response. The prompt comes from a learning styles survey given in class on Tues. Sept. 2nd. Learning Styles Survey (format II) external image pdf.png DifferentiatedLearningStylesTeachingTest(2).pdf

Due by Friday 9/5:
  • There will be a quiz covering notes in class of Wed and Thurs re: motivations for explorers as well as native people of the Americas
  • All signed paperwork including last page of class syllabus. Students are required to keep syllabus in their binders while the signature page is to be turned into the instructor.
Due Monday 9/8
