Mrs. Graeff's Class
"To know where you are going, you must know where you've been" Lala 8th grade student
Welcome to Mrs. Graeff's 8th grade Individuals and Societies/ American History class. The class consists of four standards which are History, Economics, Civics and Geography. 8th grade History begins with Events Leading to the American Revolution to the American Civil War and Reconstruction. As a part of our Economic Standard we learn about Personal Finance plus how economics impacted the history from 1778 through 1870. During our Civics unit, we spend approximately six weeks learning about the Constitution and how the country was set up politically. Students will learn how to interupt political cartoons as well as primary source documents. Geography is incorporated throughout the course all year.
