Email: Dcaputa@ebrpss.k12.la.us You might wish to write it down in case you miss school and need to contact me. I will return your email. *****PLACE NAME IN SUBJECT BOX.

Expectations: Learn western civilization well enough to pass on to college, earn TOPS, score well on ACT and consider college and/or trade school. I’ve been to both. If you don’t want to be here make other accommodations. I don’t baby-sit and you do not control my room. ***First hour: Stand for the pledge and prayer.

Dress Code: Don’t break it. I will send you out every day. You will not break me down and make me ignore your failure to comply.

Sleeping: It is not allowed. And neither is putting your head on the desk, even if you are listening. Sit up. I have to. You must.

Grading scale is posted on board in class.



84- 75-C


66-Find Jesus, Allah, Buddha, etc.

Testing types: Mainly short quizzes; multiple choice and some fill in the blank. Several map tests of world locations.

Makeup tests: Different from regular tests and taken on the following test day Friday.

Extra Credit: Very little. Longevity is rewarded.

Textbooks: If you want one you can check one out at any time and keep it as long as you want. BUT KEEP IN MIND, your tests come from the notes presented to you in class. So, attendance is everything. If you miss a great deal of school you will fall behind in the notes and you will have to copy them from another student. That is often a disaster for the student.

Writing: Prior to some quizzes, depending on the time, we will break into groups of two or three and you will write-as a group-about the material covered and to be quizzed on the following day. This will be part of our required writing days. This assignment will be for a small grade. This handout will be provided.

Classroom decorum: Please walk into class, find a seat (I don’t assign them unless you are assigned one due to poor behavior), open your notebooks and get to work. Notes will be waiting for you on the smart-board. Don’t waste time. You are too old to be told why you are here.

Homework: I don’t give any. But you can study each night for the test. I will always give you at least two days notice. So, you can have homework each night if you wish.

Drinking: No problem as long as you don’t make a mess and pick up your bottles before leaving class.

Western civilization syllabi


*We take many notes in class and you are required to take them. Your quizzes come from those notes making attendance very important. Make certain you have a notebook or loose-leaf paper and a writing tool every day. There is no day off and there won’t be one when you are in college one year from today.

*You cannot borrow my paper and pencils. I only have items for me. I’ll be responsible for me and you responsible for you.

*This class is not required. You chose to take it. Remember, wherever you chose to attend college, western civilization (or world history) are required for two semesters. It is a core college class regardless of your major. Examples below:

***LSU HIST 1001Western Civilization to 1500-Lecture

Course Description: Ideas, trends, and institutions in western civilization from earliest times to the Reformation. This course has the following broad learning objectives:

Western civilization

2. To be able to trace the growth of political institutions, economic and social trends, and the

evolution of religious, intellectual, and legal thought.

the city-state or polis, the Roman Empire, the medieval Christian church, the feudal state, the medieval commune, the merchant and craft guilds, and the dynastic state. The emergence and subsequent cultural and political influence of the three monotheistic religionsJudaism, Christianity, and Islamis discussed in detail.
