The medieval period provides students with opportunities to study the rise and fall of empires, the diffusion of religions and languages, and significant movements of people, ideas, and products. Students trace the development of medieval civilizations and make connections with regional and present day world maps. We can identify several major changes that took place during medieval and early modern times.

8TH GRADE U.S. HISTORY
8th Grade Course Description:
The eighth-grade course of study begins with an intensive review of the major ideas, issues, and events preceding the founding of the nation. Students will concentrate on the critical events of the period—from the framing of the Constitution to the American Industrial Revolution. In their study of this era, students will view American history through the lens of a people who were trying— and are still trying—to make the words of the Declaration of Independence true. Students will confront themes of equality and liberty and their changing definition over time. This course will also explore the geography of place, movement, and region, starting with the thirteen colonies and then continuing with American westward expansion, and economic development, including the shift to an industrial economy.
