Poitier, Corey

Hello My Name Is...

Mr. Poitier

I am the AP Government Teacher and the IB History Teacher for DeSoto High School. This year I get to introduce IB Government and Economics to DeSoto High School. This brand new course is going to be intensive and require a lot of reading, analyzing, note taking and discussion. Plus the IB Test and papers that need to be written ( All students) to complete the IB Journey. This challenging new course will show students Government and Economics from an international and national point of view. This is a college level course and does require strict discipline to instruction and study.
The AP Government course is a deep intensive look at the US Government and Media Bias. To receive AP credit students must take the AP exam at the end of the year!! The bonus in doing so students will gain college credit and not have to take the class in college (Must pass with a score of  3)

My IB US History course takes students on a journey to Pre-Colombian America up to the modern age. We have a lot of material to cover for the EOC test. I am the best and have the best student passing rate at DHS for EOC and look forward to continuing that pace of success.
