Welcome to 7th grade Social Studies! I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year! This year’s curriculum will allow you to appreciate the importance of social studies subjects including history, geography, economics, political science, and sociology. In our study of these subjects, you will continue to develop and use a wide variety of critical and historical thinking skills that will prepare you to think analytically and have a better understanding of the world in which you live.
Units of Study

Origins of the Constitution
The Constitution and Founding Documents

This category will include tests, quizzes, projects, reports, essays, simulations,
self-evaluations, and a variety of other assessments.
Homework/Classwork – 30%:
This category includes readings, in-class group projects, debates, research, online projects, and a variety of other activities either done in class or assigned as homework.
