The 8th grade curriculum will cover American History from the colonial period through modern times. Students will gain an appreciation for our past and understand how it influences both our present and future as we focus on the causes of the American Revolution, the Civil War, and our rise to world power. Students will practice skills such as inferencing, drawing conclusions, interpreting diagrams, and making generalizations as they learn about how conflict and compromise have shaped American History.Grading:
Grades consist of Learning Activities (classwork that may be done during course time OR begun during school and completed at home), Assessment (tests/quizzes/culminating projects), and Participation (you must take an active role in YOUR learning!).
