VI & VII Grade Social Studies 
 

7th Grade Social Studies. 

Areas of Study:

In our study of the progression from ancient states and empires to the countries and governments of the Renaissance, we will continue to develop an understanding of the meaning of “civilization” and “culture” and how these ideas apply to the variety of autonomous societal organizations that have existed through history and that continue to exist.  We will also compare a variety of religions to better understand their effect on the social and political development of Western Civilization.  We will concentrate on written history and the ability to draw facts, information, and conclusions from written sources.  Our writing will focus on well-written paragraphs, and well-organized essays. Students will be reading and writing on a regular basis both in class and at home. Throughout the year students will improve their reading strategies and critical thinking as they read both fiction and nonfiction texts. We will also be working on vocabulary related to the areas of study. Second Semester will be entirely devoted to Washington State History.  You will receive a detailed class overview at that time.

Areas of Study

In our study of ancient states and empires, we develop an understanding of the meaning of “civilization” and “culture” and how these ideas apply to the variety of autonomous societal organizations that have existed through history and that continue to exist.  We also focus on written history and the ability to draw facts, information, and conclusions from written sources.  Our writing focuses on well-written paragraphs with a theme, evidence, and elaboration.  This is coupled with the use of correct spelling and grammar.  I have been careful to align our curriculum with the Grade Level Expectations for Social Studies, as well as the Common Core State Standards for English/Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies.
