"Where the world is open to our exploration."
Seventh grade Geography students should be able to:
● Seek out and evaluate multiple historical sources (both primary and secondary) with different points of view to investigate a historical question and to formulate and defend a thesis with evidence.
● Analyze the historical eras, individuals, groups, ideas and themes within regions of the Eastern Hemisphere and compare and contrast their relationships with one another.
● Use and manipulate geographic tools to gather data and make geographic inferences and predictions. With that should come the understanding that regions have different issues and perspectives.
● Distinguish elements of continuity and change in the United States government and how the role of its citizens over time has changed and evolved.
● Understand the place and uses of law within a constitutional system.
● Understand how supply and demand influence price and profit in a market economy and begin their understanding of managing personal credit and debt.
