Welcome to Mr. Spivey's World History wiki-page. We will complete a number of assignments throughout the year by using this space to its full potential. I expect each assignment to have elements of creativity, academic integrity and innovations. This is a place where creation will take the main stage and ideas are encouraged to flow.

Must Know Information for World History Class
Links for how to Embedding Video, Podcast, etc. As we all are learners here if you find something on the web that we all can use please add your external link to the page.

  • All assignments will be into turned into the sites listed above. 'WH Spivey B 2009-10' is an example of what this site will look like in the future.
  • Always name your pages with your name or all members of the groups names. For example: French Revolution Jason Bob Sarah (Learn how to link here)
  • Name all pictures files with a unique name. For example if you name a photo picture1 and some else does the same thing, you will be erasing each others files.
  • Peer responses must be put in the discussion tab unless otherwise specified.
  • You can not have two people edit the wiki at the same time. If you do, you will be erasing each others work. There is a way to revert back to an old page but losing your work can be devastating, trust me I have.
  • All assignments have a time stamp, so don't turn your work late.
  • You are publishing this work to the world therefore remember to keep it academically appropriate. Inappropriate uses include name calling or personal attacks on fellow students or KIS staff, any foul language or pictures of sex, drugs and/or rock n' roll.
  • Remember to only use your first time. Internet safety is key to the success of both this class and your future.

Failure to comply with the KIS internet safety guidelines could get you banded from the website which would be detrimental to your grade. Remember these guidelines are set up with your interests in mind above all else.


Essay writing will be an integral part of your freshmen world history experience. Over the last couple of years Mr. Spivey has collected a variety of helpful "tools" that you can use while developing important life skills. If you find a source or have an idea that you would like to contribute to the site, contact Mr. Spivey for approval.
