Welcome to Ms. Walser's World History II and Government Classroom

This is the place to keep up to date with the classroom's events, homework assignments, web resources and documents. 

In both World History II and Government we will explore the overarching themes and the minute details of the past and present.  In many ways history and government can be viewed like a photograph.  When you zoom in close there may be a different story than if you look at the broader picture.  We will strive to integrate the small voices into the larger picture of history throughout the year.  Students will cultivate the ability to analyze and critically evaluate the past and how it continues to impact society today.
