Course Overview:

WORLD HISTORY:SOCIETIES OF THE PAST
“Grade 8 students explore societies of the past and make connections between the
past and present. They examine the origins of human societies from early hunter-
gatherer ways of life to societies of the nineteenth century. They study significant
people, ideas, and events of historical periods that have shaped the modern world and
consider the implications of contact between diverse societies. As they explore
selected past societies, students become aware of differing world views and the factors
that influence change in societies. They assess the influence of the past on the present
and develop an appreciation for the historical significance of past societies and
civilizations.”

    Due Dates will be given and students are expected to hand things in on or
       before the due date. You would not be allowed to do things late for your
       boss so do not hand things in late. This is a life expectation.
    All notes are required to be as neat and orderly as possible.
    Important points are to be underlined or highlighted neatly.
    Ensure that you leave the correct amount of space to complete your
       answers.
    SHOW ALL OF YOUR WORK!! Hand in rough and good copy.
    Rough copy will be attached to the back of the assignment. If one is not
       present the assignment will be marked as a rough copy and no marks will be
       given for the good copy. Rough copy has edit markings and proofreading
       marks.
    Be sure that all notes and assignments include a title, the date in which it
       was assigned and the assignment page and question numbers.
    Students are required to get the material needed to make projects. These
       are not provided by the school.
    Students are asked to work in groups but work in groups will be marked on an
       individual basis. What your child puts into the group work will reflect in
       his/her mark. Hard work does not go unnoticed. Team work is vital in todays
       society and we may have to work with people that we do not consider our
       best friends but we are all friends and will be mindful of that!
