7th U.S. History - Unit web pages

Grade seven features history as the lead discipline with a secondary emphasis on citizenship and government. 
The interdisciplinary “Studies”
approach is further enhanced with economics and geography content that round out the study of United States history. 

U.S. History: Students learn about people, issues and events of significance to this nation’s history from 1800 to the current era of globalization. Topics covered include: The Civil War, Reconstruction, Industrial America, Westward Expansion, Progressive Reforms, U.S. imperialism, WWI, the Roaring 20s, the Great Depression, WWII, the Cold War, the Vietnam Era, and modern America.  Students will also conduct historical inquiry on a topic in the nation’s history.

Government: Students also learn about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and Supreme Court decisions for their lasting impact on the American people, economy and governance structure. 

Economics: Students study civics and economic principles, drawing connections between these disciplines and history to explain the impact of various policies on how people lived, worked and functioned in society. 

Geography: They create and use detailed maps of places in the United States as they relate to the units of study.

Students will be doing a variety of activities, online and in the classroom, in order to learn about the history of this country. History is perception, and our goal is to get the students thinking with an open mind about the past.
