My name is Natalie Fontenot and am teaching Pre AP World History and World History in the Green Tech Academy. In the past I have taught AP US History, Social Studies Skills and EOC Prep classes.
Before becoming an educator I attained a bachelor's from the University of Texas at Austin in Government and Middle Eastern Studies and was a policy analyst in the Texas Senate for four years. I believe that the Social Studies and the study of history is critical to understanding our place in the world and working towards the world we want to create for the future.
World History is a course that focuses on the development of early man beginning with the Neolithic Revolution all the way to current times. We will focus on applying critical thinking skills and analytical skills to historical topics as well as to topics that affect today's society. The Pre AP World History and World History syllabus can both be found on your BLEND course. You can also find a class calendar and all assignments for each day in BLEND.
Parents can also access all material and assignments on BLEND by accessing the Austin ISD Parent Cloud.
I invite any parents and students to email me with any questions. (Email is best.)
