2 World History

 
WORLD HISTORY

THIS CORINTHIAN HELMET is the symbol for all of my World History classes.  
It represents the warrior spirit that it will take to conquer this course, this school year & life.  
As you will learn, the warriors that wore these bronze & iron-forged helmets were tough, brave & disciplined.  
So must you be if you wish to be successful.
