Welcome to Ms. Rivard's World History Wiki!

I am looking forward to getting to know all of you this year! I hope you find this web page useful. In the navigation bar to the left, you will see links to a series of different pages. On the About page, there is section titled "About the wiki," which contains a lot of useful information about what type of information is available on the wiki and where you can find it. Please let me know if you have any questions!!! See the Contact page for more information about the best way to get contact me outside of class/school.

Navigating the WikiSpace

When looking for course materials, make sure to select the specific UNIT* (i.e. Russian Revolutions) in the navigation bar to the right. Do not try to use the "Pages and File" link (top right) to find course materials. The link will pull up every version of every PowerPoint, worksheet, etc. that I've ever uploaded. Materials, while similar, are updated year to year, and modified to reflect changes in the curriculum.

*If the unit you need is not in the navigation bar, click "See more." Occasionally, Chrome has some issues pulling up the additional pages, so you may want to try a different browser.
