Welcome to World History for the 2020-2021 school year!
I am excited for a great year learning about the world, our country, diverse cultures, and the impact of the past on our present and future. In this class, we'll pursue becoming well-rounded critical thinkers who not only know about the past, but apply it to the world and making it a better place. Skills and content will both be emphasized in pursuit of an understanding of the world's events and why they matter to us today.
Google Classroom is the primary platform housing my virtual classroom. Assignments and an agenda, including instruction videos to walk you through asynchronous work, will be posted weekly on Mondays. All work, unless otherwise specified on the agenda, is due the following Monday. Please actively check my Google Classroom and your school email for regular updates from me. If you ever need to reach me, please send me an email without hesitation. I look forward to our year together, as we are living history with our unprecedented entirely virtual school environment! Let's enjoy this educational journey through time and our world together.
My name is Ms. Oertwig, and this is my second year as a Rowland Raider. I graduated from University of California, San Diego with my Bachelor's Degree in History, and am currently finishing my Masters in Education at Biola University. I am passionate about history, learning, and travel. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to Disneyland, and reading. I am currently the Rowland High School Mock Trial coach, and love being involved in the academic and extracurricular Raider communities.
