6th Grade students must have TDAP in order to begin 7th grade. Proof must be provided to Records Office at Cope Middle School.
The Redlands High School Counselors want to encourage all our future parents and guardians to attend our annual 8th into 9th Grade Parent Night on Monday, April 10 at 6:00 p.m. in Clock Auditorium on the RHS campus. Topics to be covered included graduation requirements, registration forms, honors programs, summer school, student activities, and academic policies.á The High School asks that you download and print the registration documents.
8th Grade U.S. History
Instructor: Mr. Tarbi   
This is a survey class of American History from 1776 to 1914. We use the other Social Science disciplines, Anthropology, Sociology, Archeology, Psychology and Economics to try and understand the story of America.

=====================================

I try and cover a section per day in class. Each chapter has 4 to 5 sections. There is always a day for review before a chapter test. Tests are 40 questions long and are of the scantron type. There is homework assigned every night for this class. I try and not assign homework over the weekend, but sometimes it can't be avoided.  It is the student's responsibility to study on their own time and to know the difference between just reading the material and studying the material. Work book pages will be assigned for each chapter we study in the book.

Class Announcements
Mr. Tarbi out of the classroom
I will be gone from May 10 through the 24th. I am having one of my hip joints replaced.
Concerning Field Trips
There may exist opportunities for some students to participate in field trips or activities beyond school. Altho requirements for each event may vary, in general students will be invited based on excellent behavior and citizenship. Outstanding students are those who show a hightened interest in their academic subjects, a passion for learning, regular and enthusiastic participation in class, demonstrate a positive and helpful attitude, are kind and respectful of others, pay attention, follow direction, maintain good attendance, and exhibit mature and responsible behavior... even when I'm not looking.
Concerning testing
If you are absent on a scheduled test day, you may be asked to take an essay make-up test.

State Standards & tests
Please note that all tests and quizzes have been changed to reflect the Common Core standards. NOTE: The common assessments, the district mid-term and final are all standards based tests. Below is a listing of the common core standards for 6 - 12 grade History as of 5-11-2012.
