This 8th grade social studies class will cover over 2500 years of history!  We begin our journey by looking at the Ancient Greeks then move onto the Romans, Middle Ages, the Renaissance, Scientific Revolution, the Enlightenment, and the beginning of the modern world.  In addition to the historical content, the goal of Global Studies I is to continue developing the skills necessary to be career and college ready.  Some of these skills include analysis and evaluation of text, writing skills, use of technology, forming and defending a position, and collaboration and communication skills.
