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.
