Social Studies Overview

7th Grade Social Studies Standards include:

Disciplinary Skills and Processes

(Chronological reasoning requires understanding processes of change and continuity over time, thinking within the diciplie involves the ability to idnetify, compre, and evaluate multiple perspectives, historians and social scientists gather, interpret, and use evidence to develop claims and answer questions, thinking within the discipline involves the ability to analyze relationships)


(citizens have individual rights, process rules and laws detemine how people are governed and how society addresses problems)


(finacial literacy, inerdependence in a market system, the interconnectedness of the global economy and its impacts)


(use of geographic representations to understand the world, human-environment interactions influence on society, human population and movement has impacted conditions on the Earth's surface, global interconnections and spatial patterns are necessary to geographic reasoning)


(development of civilizations, societies, cultures, and innovations have influenced history and continue to impact the modern world, cycles of conflict and cooperation shape relationships, economic, political, and religious ideas and institutions have influenced history and continue to shape the world, petterns of social and political interactions have shaped people, places, and events throughout history)
