Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to World History. I am Mr. Garcia and I am looking forward to a challenging, exciting, and productive school year with you. In order to better prepare our students for the 21st century, there are several initiatives that schools across the country are implementing. One term you may have heard about recently is Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The CCSS refers to National Standards that will officially be replacing the CA State Standards in the year 2014-2015. What is unique about these standards is the strong emphasis on literacy and the different approach towards assessment. Your support will be imperative to your child’s future success as we transition into the CCSS.
