7th and 8th Grade World Studies (offered every other year)

World Studies is a year-long course that explores the gamut of time from the prehistoric to the present. To learn about the world, all of the areas of Social Studies are used. This includes not just history, but also geography, civics, sociology and economics. Essentially picking up where the 6th grade Social Studies course left off, World Studies looks at each of the seven continents individually and comparatively. In particular, a lot of time was spent analyzing themes in the Earth’s past, such as economic trends, cultural conflicts and belief systems.
