Tanners Crossing School Lori Noonan-Robinson Grade 8 SS 2011-2012 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.” Textbook(s)/Materials Required: Human Heritage Textbook People through the Ages Binder, scribbler for notes, pencil, pens both- red and blue, ruler, eraser, pencil crayons, reinforcements, duotang Unit Title Target Learning Assessment Plan Proposed Timeline Outcomes Social Studies Skills 8-S-100, 8-S-101, 8-S- 102, 8-S-103, 8-S-104, 8- S-105, 8-S-106, 8-S-200, 8-S-201, 8-S-202, 8-S- 203, 8-S-204, 8-S-205, 8- S-206, 8-S-207, 8-S-208 8-S-300, 8-S-301, 8-S- 302, 8-S-303, 8-S-304, 8- S-305, 8-S-306, 8-S-307, 8-S-308, 8-S-309, 8-S- 310, 8-S-311, 8-S-400, 8- S-401, 8-S-402, 8-S-403, 8-S-404, 8-S-405 8-KI-005 -8-KI-012, 8-KL- - 10 % - Current 8 weeks Cluster 1: 022, 8-KH-027, 8-KH- Events Quizzes Understanding 028, 8-VI-004, 8-VI-008, Societies 35 % - Daily Past and Present Assignments - 25 % - Projects / Major Assignments 30 % - Tests and Quizzes Tanners Crossing School Lori Noonan-Robinson Grade 8 SS 2011-2012 8-KI-013, 8-KI-014, 8-KL- - 10 % - Current 8 weeks Cluster 2: Early 023, 8-KL-024, 8-KH- Events Quizzes Societies of 029, 8-KH-030, 8-KG- Mesopotamia, Egypt, 038, 8-KP-045, 8-KE- 35 % - Daily or the Indus 054, 8-VH-009, 8-VH- Assignments Valley 010, 8-VE-017 - 25 % - Projects / Major Assignments 30 % - Tests and Quizzes 8-KC-001, 8-KC-002, 8- - 10 % - Current 8 weeks Cluster 3: Ancient KC-003, 8-KI-015, 8-KI- Events Quizzes Societies of Greece 016, 8-KI-017, 8-KL-025, and Rome 8-KH-031, 8-KH-032, 8- 35 % - Daily KG-039, 8-KP-046, 8-KP- Assignments 047, 8-KP-048, 8-KE- - 25 % - Projects / 055, 8-KE-056, 8-VC- Major Assignments 001, 8-VI-005, 8-VI-006, 8-VH-011, 8-VP-016 30 % - Tests and Quizzes 8-KI-018, 8-KI-019, 8-KH- - 10 % - Current 8 weeks Cluster 4: Transition to 033, 8-KH-034, 8-KH- Events Quizzes the Modern 035, 8-KG-040, 8-KG- World (Circa 500 to 041, 8-KG-042, 8-KP- 35 % - Daily 1400) 049, 8-KP-050, 8-KP- Assignments 051, 8-KP-052, 8-KP- - 25 % - Projects / 053, 8-KE-057, 8-KE- 058, 8-VH-012, 8-VG- Major Assignments 014, 8-VG-015 30 % - Tests and Quizzes Cluster 5: 8-KC-004, 8-KI-020, 8-KI- - 10 % - Current 8 weeks Shaping the Modern 021, 8-KL-026, 8-KH- Events Quizzes World 036, 8-KH-037, 8-KG- (Circa 1400 to 1850) 043, 8-KG-044, 8-KE- 35 % - Daily 059, 8-KE-060, 8-KE- Assignments 061, 8-VC-002, 8-VC- - 25 % - Projects / 003, 8-VI-007, 8-VH-013, 8-VE-018, Major Assignments 30 % - Tests and Quizzes Tanners Crossing School Lori Noonan-Robinson Grade 8 SS 2011-2012 Due Dates will be given and students are expected to hand things in on or before the due date.
