• Welcome to Mr. Schubmehl's House of History

    Hello, history fanatics and all other visitors (everyone is welcome here)! 

    It's nice to have you here. I hope you enjoy our time together :-).

    On this site, you will find a class overview, class notes, PPTs used in class, as well as 
    Photo Story and Movie Maker presentations used in class, classroom assignments, tentative quiz and test dates, helpful quiz hints, hyperlinks to websites used in class, etc. 

    Global and AP students will find assignments, tentative quiz/test dates, etc. on the Homework/Quizzes/Test page.

    Unit/Chap material forGlobal - usually titled with the chap/unit number or name.

    AP material is grouped together on the AP History page.

    You will find other useful links for both classes as well on the main page.
    HTF links are separated by the individual movies/topics.

    Global students you should always read the chapter we are covering, to fill in any gaps left in the class material.
    At the very least it is your responsibility to use the book, and other resources, to help you look up Study Guide questions that may
    NOT have been covered in class and/or help assist you with your hw.

    APWH students starting with chapter 17 you will be ASSIGNED the reading; you will be assessed on
    the material with quizzes on the reading. A typical chapter will consist of 3 - 5 quizzes on the reading and/or vocab. 

    AP and Global students if you have any questions about drops, extra credit, assessments, etc please be sure to see me. 

    Unfortunately, this is still a very surreal time with a great deal of uncertainty. Please remember we are in it together. My door is always open. If you have a concern and don't have the time to stop in, don't feel comfortable, etc please email me and I will be sure to get back to you. If I don't have an answer, I will do my best to get an answer. Looking forward to seeing everyone again and hoping for a great year.

    that here, obedient to their laws, we lie."

    There are numerous changes and additions on many pages; that will hopefully improve the quality of info on the various pages.For the PPT presentations be aware that you will not have the songs, sound clips, etc that were with the PPT when it was played in class - they will not be on the computer you are viewing it on (unless that computer is my classroom computer). However, you will still be able to view the PPT. The hw, quizzes, and test page is updated regularly so check there to keep track of what is taking place in the class.

    To reference a specific unit/chapter simply click on the link for that topic; you will find these links to the right-hand side of this page. Please note that you will not be able to view PPT presentations, Photo Story, etc if you do not have that application on the computer you are using.

    Useful History Websites - not only will we look at these sites in class, but they are also excellent sources of historical information.

    United States Holocaust Museum

    BBC History webpage

    Military History webpage - also a great magazine (in this humble historian's opinion)

    A couple of great sports sites
    Section V's wrestling website - great way to keep up on NYS high school wrestling and the NCAAs

    America's Team (Did you really think I wouldn't have this on here somewhere?)
