History - 8th Grade

Middle school history is taught in mix-aged classes of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. All students learn the same information and receive the same assignments, but the expectations for their work, testing, and grading are different according to grade level and ability. Students work on projects individually and in small groups, which allow older students to serve as mentors and model more sophisticated approaches to learning and problem solving.

The history curriculum is based on a three-year rotation.

Year 1 - Ancient History

Year 2 - Early Modern World History

Year 3 - American History
