Mr. Charon-World Civilizations


"We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon."

-Franklin Delano Roosevelt

If you are a member of Mr. Charon's WC class, you are definitely in the right place! Read on to find out about the information contained on this page!

First of all is everyone's favorite "Make-up Assignment List" . Check this list out to see when your make-up work is due.

Next, is the current list of "Journal Entries" so you can be sure that you have them all completed!

The third part of this page contains the all important "links to other websites" that cover information relevant to the current topics of study that go beyond what is written about these subjects in the textbook or that we have time to discuss in class.

(As always we continue our Virtual Tours of Europe! This week: Germany & Italy, with special emphasis placed on the cities of Berlin, Munich, Venice, Genoa, & Naples!)

Last but not least, is our "Looking Ahead" section. It is here that you will find information about areas of study in the not-so distant future.

If you have any questions, please speak with Mr. Charon in person and/or e-mail him.
