What will be learned this year? U.S. history, starting from the English Colonies in North America all the way to the Civil War and its aftermath, Reconstruction (1619-1877). This covers 8th grade content standards 8.1 through 8.11.
What kind of assignments will there be? Following the common core standards for literacy in social studies/history, assignments will emphasize:
- citing textual evidence
- determining the central idea of a text
- reading complex texts independently as the year progresses
- writing arguments to support claims with clear evidence
- produce clear and coherent writing assignments
- the analysis of historical primary sources
- Be ready for class; use a place in your home free from distractions
- Complete the attendance task, even on school days that you do not have history
How will work be graded?
- Classwork 40% of grade; projects/tests/writing assignments 60%
- Grades will be posted regularly in Aeries
