Introduction and expectations

Your teacher and course

Richard Jones-Nerzic is a Welsh human science teacher. I have been at EE3 Brussels since 2009 and have taught previously in Wales, France and Slovakia.

All syllabus information, assignments, videos, quizzes etc. for the course are on my website: The password ‘bisb’ unlocks any protected videos. I can be contacted at This address is at the bottom of every page of my website. Your first homework is to send me an email – subject ‘s4 History student’.

Equipment list

A small folder or Atoma file, pen, pencil, ruler, rubber, glue and coloured pencils. A USB memory stick is essential to save work in the computer lab. There is no set textbook but my website does contain recommended textbooks and ideas for further reading


All the work you complete during this year must be kept in a neat, well organized folder or Atoma file and this sheet should be on page 1. Do not, therefore, throw away work from completed units of study. I will occasionally inspect these as part of my evaluation of your ‘A’ grade mark (see below). Specific assessed work will be handed in on individual pieces of Atoma paper. Homework, unless otherwise stated, should be your own work – not copied from your friend or written by your older brother. It should be handed in on time on the day requested. You can work with a computer if you prefer.

The language of the classroom is English. Try to use it at every opportunity and sit with people with whom you have to use English to communicate. Probably the best feature of the European Schools system of education is the fact that the social sciences are taught in your second language; make the most of the opportunity.


Not all your work will be marked out of 10. Other than for tests, I will generally not tell you which pieces of work will be marked. ‘A’ grades will be based on your class work, homework and occasional test results; but also just as importantly on your oral work, attitude to work and general reliability. You will have four ‘B Tests’ throughout the year, two in each term. The dates for the first two ‘B Tests’ will be given to you in the first lesson in September and are also published on my website a term in advance.
