We’re looking forward to an exciting school year, in which students will deepen their knowledge of the world around them. Seventh grade world history will teach students about the social and cultural changes that occurred throughout Europe, Africa, and Asia, from the fall of the Roman Empire to the start of the modern era. The course aligns with California content standards for seventh grade history.
As students learn about history, they will also build key skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Below is an overview of the upcoming school year, which lists each unit’s instructional focus.
