  • Welcome to Mrs. Giallella's Teacher Page!

    This is my 20th year teaching Social Studies at Orchard Park High School.  This year I am teaching Global History 9 and Global History 10.  

    The ninth grade course in Global History is a required course that covers World History from 4000 BCE to 1750 CE.  At the conclusion of the year, all ninth grade students will take a local examination.  For students to gain credit for this course, he/she must successfully pass the course with at least a sixty-five percent.  

    In the tenth grade, the course covers global events from 1750 to present.  The course is also a required for graduation.  All students will sit for a Regents examination at the end of the year, which will assess material learned in both ninth and tenth grade.  For students to gain credit for this course and graduate, he/she must successfully pass the course and the exam with at least a sixty-five percent.

    Please view the "Homework" page for a listing of my units of study along with due dates for daily assignments, major projects/essays and test dates. The "My Resources" page gives suggestions for writing research papers or reviewing for unit tests. I have a book-list and contact information page as well. 

    Be sure to check my web page frequently.  Assignment dates may change and are not set in stone.  I look forward to a great and successful school year.
