Subjects I Teach: 7th Grade World Studies
Seventh grade is the second year of a two year World Area Studies course. Seventh grade students study Africa and Asia. The goal of this two year course is to acquaint middle school students with the world in which they live. The history domain focuses primarily on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, however, some earlier history is included when necessary to understand developments of today. The geography domain includes both physical and human geography. The intent of the geography domain is for students to begin to grasp the importance geography plays in our everyday lives. The civics/government domain focuses on selected types of government found in the various areas so as to help students begin to understand the variety of governments in the world. The economics domain builds on the K-5 economics, however, the focus shifts from the United States to how other countries answer the basic questions of economics.
