History 8 Green
Welcome to Grade 8 History!
In Grade 8 History, students learn about world cultures and human rights. We study particular areas of the world, including South Africa, India, and Israel, studying their histories and human rights issues by examining current events and political environments. In connection with the Grade 8 essential question "Where am I going?" we will be considering how personal responsibility and action can impact current events and issues.
Students explore history by using the GGREASES method: government, religion, economics, art and architecture, science and technology, education, and social life to conduct research about the history topics. This discussion-based course will enable students to hone their reading, writing, research and organizational skills and will culminate in a joint History/English research project and Human Rights Symposium in the spring.
