    Welcome to 7th Grade Social Studies

    I would like to welcome you scholars to expanding your skills and knowledge of the world. In 7th grade Social Studies you will learn about the history of the world starting from the Renaissance to modern day in order to gain detailed understanding of our interdependent world. In this course we will explore the world's patterns of change through conflict and cooperation, economic development, population shifts, cultural values and beliefs, political thought and organizations, and the impact of environment over time. Our discovery and exploration will be conducted by examining the similarities and differences responsible for the various factors that shaped the regions of globe and developed societies.

    To achieve our goal of world learning you will survey the history of the world through its history, geography and environmental literacy, economic and financial literacy, civic and governance and its culture.
