Seventh Grade Social Studies
 
Instructor: Jason Buchtmann
 
Course Objective:

The curriculum for North Carolina’s 7th Grade Social Studies course will continue to expand upon the knowledge, skills, and understanding acquired in the sixth grade examination of early and current civilizations from different continents. Seventh graders study the world from the Age of Exploration to contemporary times in order to understand the implications of increased global interactions. The focus will remain on the discipline of geography by using the themes of location, place, movement, human-environmental interaction and region to understand modern societies and regions. This course will guide students through patterns of change and continuity with a focus on conflict and cooperation, economic development, population shifts, political thought and organization, cultural values and beliefs and the impact of environment over time.
