8th Grade Social Studies

US History

Students & Parents

    • During the school year we will be studying the establishment of the United States from colonies to revolution and as many major developments over the course of American history as time permits. Students will also be working on a comprehensive research project using National History Day guidelines. This will be a six month project that will begin at the start of school.
    • Goals for the class:
      1. Analyze the major events and multiple voices/perspectives involved during the American Revolution.
      2. Understand the foundational principals of our government structure and rights as citizens and what that means for us now – shortcomings and progress.
      3. Develop research skills for historical analysis and formulating a thesis to prove.
      4. Have fun while learning!

All school assignments will be posted in Microsoft Teams.
