8th grade Social Science focuses on the founding of our nation through Reconstruction.
Students will engage in a variety of learning modules as we discuss principles that developed our government and make connections to modern times. The 8th grade team is committed to students learning through inquiry, which will be assessed quarterly with historical writing prompts. We also want them to think of themselves as world citizens and self reflect on how they can contribute to society.
We tackle a number of mature themes throughout the year. Students are encouraged to be respectful and open minded as they interact with their peers.
