Course Overview
8th Grade social studies is a world history course covering from Medieval Times to the present.  Throughout the year we will use this knowledge to make connections with current events and develop a clear understanding of the world in which we live today.

Students will be exposed to a variety of learning opportunities to accommodate different learning styles.  Such activities will include cooperative group work, primary and secondary source readings, Internet activities, discussions/debates, and formal research.  Critical thinking skills will be developed as students make reasoned judgments about the plans, strategies, and beliefs that led people to action.
