Professional BiographyDr. Michael McCabeSocial Science Teacher
During 2018-2019 at Park View, Dr. McCabe teaches Modern World History (World History 2), as well as a first semester philosophy class called World of Ideas. This is his first year full time at Park View, though he substituted here, and in other Sterling schools, since the fall of 2016.
The son of a U.S. Army officer, Dr. McCabe also served in the U.S. Army, as well as in the U.S. Department of State as a Foreign Service Officer. He has lived outside the United States, either as a child or as an adult, in England, Germany, Italy, India, Japan, and The Philippines. Dr. McCabe and his wife Pat both love history and their overseas experiences help make his modern world history position here at Park View a natural fit.
A graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Dr. McCabe also has Masters Degrees from the University of Southern California and the National Defense University. He received his Doctorate in Education from the University of Virginia.
Dr. McCabe and his wife each have done genealogical work and both descend from European immigrants to America in the 1600s. Dr. McCabe is a member of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) through Revolutionary ancestors who lived here in Loudoun County. Besides history, Dr. McCabe's interests include logic, chess, personal fitness, humor, and learning about people and personalities. He and his wife have three children, six grandchildren, and two step-grandchildren.
Course InformationCurrent GradesPlease log into Phoenix/ParentvueCurrent Homework Assignments
Generally, my students do not have homework assignments. During the winter holiday break, World of Ideas students are to read a several page handout on What Makes a Society Just. Modern World History students should check their grades, complete any assignments for which they currently have a zero as a grade, and turn in those completed assignments upon returning to school.
Earlier in December, I provided each student with a packet of assignments for which s/he had a zero grade at that time. So far, not all students have completed and submitted those assignments. (Written Dec 20)Course Materials and HandoutsUpcoming Assessments
In January 2019 upon returning to school, Modern World History students will study The Industrial Revolution for the remainder of the semester. Their Unit Test will be given just before the semester ends.Course SyllabusQuarter (Nine Week) Plan Extra Curricular Positions Contact Information Address:
