District Grading Protocol
Individual Practice 10%
This is a required course for seventh grade students and is an integral part of the District’s K-12 social studies program. This course emphasizes the impact of physical geography on the culture of the people and on the ancient civilizations that once lived in these regions. The intent of this course is to broaden the student’s knowledge of geographical terms and increase their cultural awareness. The curriculum centers on the regions of the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Students will gain an understanding of each country or region’s history, religions, culture and geographical features by using a variety of instructional strategies and resources.
This course continues to build off of the geographical content covered in sixth grade and further prepares students for a study of World History in eleventh grade.
