This is the official site for Mr. Jenkins' World History and Economics courses at Oak Ridge High School!

              If you would like to contact Mr. Jenkins, please see below.
Room P-10

If you are a student, consider P - 10.

Mr. Jenkins can be reached in room P - 10 most days before school, at the break, during lunch, and after school.

Please come in when you have a question, when you have missed a class, or need to make up work. You will find that it will take only a few minutes and that it is well worth the time.

Remember, there is a limited amount of time to take care of missed work, so take care of it sooner, not later. I'll make time for you if you come in and see me.

The best thing that you can do is not miss class.



Important Note: The final day to turn in late, old, missing or incomplete work for all classes in the first semester (The Drop Dead Date) is: 

Friday 12 / 13 / 19 

by the end of 1st period.  

The second semester Drop Dead Date for all classes is
Friday 5 / 22 / 20

by the end of 1st period.

Good news!
Now everyone can "play" our economics and world history classes from home!

Check out the "Home Versions" of both economics and world history! Click on the link to the left for more!

You can still turn in "old" work! Take pictures of your old work, and explain what you want me to look at. Let's keep the work rolling in and bring up our grades! 
You can also do the work using the attachments on this site. Simply download the assignment, complete it, and share it with me! Wow! That was simple...and good!

Check this out! This came from the district.
Students may choose to receive letter grades for the semester, or they may choose to receive a Pass/No Mark grade for the semester. The option for letter grades will be available to students who choose either distance learning option (online or paper packets). Universities and colleges are developing admissions policies for students earning pass marks instead of letter grades.  While the District does not control college admissions processes, it is our belief that colleges will develop policies that do not discriminate against students who receive pass marks instead of letter grades during the closure. UC and CSU campuses will not require a letter grade for the mandatory a-g courses taken in high school this year (2020) in winter, spring or summer. Families may choose the Pass/No Mark option anytime during the semester up until May 22, 2020. By mid-May, the District will receive written notification from most colleges as to their updated admission criteria.

The Pass Mark may be issued for any grades earned for the semester from A to D. F grades will be awarded No Marks for the semester. Students receiving No Marks will not earn credit. The Pass or No Mark will not be averaged into the students’ GPA. Counselors are finalizing the process by which families notify the District of their students’ grading option choice by course (letter grade or Pass/No Mark).

We at Oak Ridge High School are concentrating on building information literacy skills so that our students will be able to efficiently locate and effectively use quality information in answering questions and solving problems.  These skills will form the foundation for lifelong inquiry, learning, and problem solving.  We teach these skills within the meaningful context of assignments in the content area and within a research model that helps students determine information need, identify and locate the best information sources, and use that information in the creation of unique products.
