Welcome to 8th Grade Social Studies
Throughout the year, we will examine some of the major civilizations of the Medieval Era to gain an understanding of the development, decline and legacy of each. Utilizing the skills of social scientists, we will analyze the influence of each society on both the medieval world and the world in which we live today. In doing so, we will gain an understanding of global interdependence and how that shapes our society. As a result, we will become better prepared to enter our local, national and global communities as informed and active citizens.
