My name is Mike Hernandez and I am excited to be a part of the MVA community. I am from San Diego and I went to St. Augustine HS. After graduating, I attended Northeastern University where I earned a BS in Criminal Justice. I thin came home to San Diego and decided law enforcement and law school were not for me. I moved to Long Beach where I attended CSU Long Beach. I received my Single Subject Teaching Credential in Social Sciences. While attending, I chose to take the full History coursework to prove subject matter competency. Due to this, I am well equipped to teach all levels of History.

This year we will be using Google Classroom (Code: 1xi332) and Khan Academy (Code: HYJSMZ6E). Students will also be asked to complete assignments from their textbooks weekly. Students should expect about 5 hours of work to be completed at home per week.

I strongly encourage that students attend class daily. During class, I will be reviewing the material from the book that students worked on at home. I will be making sense of what they read while providing more clarity and answering any questions they may have. I will also be doing class activities with students that they may be responsible for finishing or extending their learning at home.

I look forward to teaching this class this year. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have.
In class: Underground Railroad DBQ, Civil War Debate

Homework: 4.1, 4.2: Terms and Names, Main Idea, and Critical Thinking (1-5 for both)

4.3, 4.4: Terms and Names, Main Idea, and Critical Thinking (1-5 for both)
Khan Academy
Khan Academy assignments are mostly meant to be supplemental assignments that I will add to help you with your studies. The assigned modules are not always mandatory. The only time they will be mandatory is when I add the assignment to Google Classroom. If you do not see it on Google Classroom it is optional, however, I highly encourage you to complete any that I assign.
