General Course Information

   

“Seventh graders study the world from the Late Middle Ages to contemporary times (approximately 1400 – Present) in order to understand the implications of increased global interactions. 

The focus will remain on the discipline of geography by using the themes of location, place, movement, human-environmental interaction, and region to understand modern societies and regions. This course will guide students through patterns of change and continuity with a focus on conflict and cooperation, economic development, population shifts, political thought and organization, cultural values and beliefs and the impact of environments over time.

Through an investigation of the various factors that shaped the development of societies and regions in the modern world and global interactions, students will examine both similarities and differences.”
