Dear Parent or Guardian:

My name is Michael Robinson, and I will be your child's AP Human Geography and/or Facing History and Ourselves teacher. I hope you will take the time to look over the course syllabus, discipline plan, and daily lesson plan that is on my website:

Please feel free to email me if you have any concerns about your child’s grade, attendance, behavior, etc.

Here are a a few commonly asked questions with their answers:

Q. What is the best way to contact me?

A. The best way is to email me at I would request that your child be the person to contact me with questions and concerns about class. I think this helps make them responsible for their own learning and grade. With that said, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have specific concerns or questions that your child cannot ask me.

Q. What supplies are needed for the class?

A. The students in my AP Human Geography class will need a three ring binder, and the students in my Facing History class will need either a three ring binder or a folder. There will be books that will need to be purchased. These will be discussed in class.

Q. What can my child do to improve his/her grade?

A. They should complete all missing work and turn it in for a late grade. They should make sure they study for all their quizzes and tests. Most quizzes can be retaken for a higher grade,and all tests will be corrected for a higher grade. Extra credit will be announced throughout the grading period.

Q. When is the next test or quiz?

A. The Daily Lesson Plan sheet has all the information for what is done each day in class. The Daily Lesson Plan sheet can be downloaded and printed from the web site. A copy of the Daily Lesson Plan sheet is on the back of this letter.

Q. Why does my child have a zero for a missing assignment?

A. A zero for any assignment means that the assignment has not been turned in. As soon as the assignment is turned in, then the correct grade will be added. If a student is absent on the day an assignment is turned in, then the grade will remain a zero until the student turns in the assignment.

If you have any concerns or questions, please email me at or call the school and leave a message for me to call you back. I am looking forward to a successful school year, and I hope to meet and talk with you soon.
