    Welcome to Mr. Porter's Homepage

    Hello, I'm Mr. Porter.  My History classes specialize in not only learning and engagement but hopefully fun and a feeling of community.  My entire class, including any assingments and/or handouts, is online on Google Classroom.  My classes are also enjoying our learning adventure in the virtual world using Classcraft.

    All content we will be covering this year is found here in the California State Standards, starting with section 7.1 on page 27.

    We start the year learning about The Fall of Rome then transition to Arabia, Western Africa, China, The Americas, Japan and then end the year with Europe and the Renaissance. My classes focus on group work and project based learning. I do not assign homework so all work is done in class.

    I accept late work for Trimester 1 with a 10% reduction in points, for Trimester 2 with a 25% reduction in points, and for Trimester 3 with a 50% reduction in points only with the completion of a "Pink Slip" that can be found in my classroom.

    Every Friday we will be coding with Mr. Chris from Code to the Future exploring ways to turn our History assignments into functioning website the students create themselves from scratch using HTML, CSS, and Javascript coding languages. 

    All grades will be posted in LCC's official grading application Zangle.
