Grade 8 Social Studies
Our 8th grade Social Studies curriculum focuses on United States history from the Revolutionary Era to Civil War (1770s to 1860s). I encourage all students to read at home in an effort to build content knowledge. Our textbook is downloaded on my classpage. You will find the link below. We are currently studying events leading to the Revolutionary War, which would align with Chapter 3 in our textbook. We will be reading various primary sources in during the semester. Students are to read and interpret these sources in an effort to understand how historian know about the past. Much of our reading in class will be conducted through primary source documents. To further comprehend our nation's history, I encourage continued reading through textbook online. The links are as follows:
