Social Studies in grade eight focuses on the history of South Carolina and the role that the state and its people have played in the development of the United States as a nation. Students learn about the state’s development during colonial times; the growth of the American ideal, which led to the break with England; and the rising controversy about slavery, which led to the Civil War. The continued study of South Carolina from Reconstruction to the present, including the struggle for social and economic justice waged by the people of South Carolina further allows students to see the progress that the state has made and also to visualize the future challenges yet to be met and overcome. Some of the course topics include: geography, civilization, government, economics, and culture. Students will examine the causes and effects of events that took place in South Carolina and analyze how they helped the state to become what it is today. The study of South Carolina allows students to see the progress that the state has made and to appreciate the contributions that its people have made to the nation as a whole.

Welcome back 8th graders! I will be posting homework assignments, any you might need to know - I will mention in class and post it in the announcements, and files or links or images we may use in class. I will also post some of these same items in Google Classrooms for practice use, writing, and responses during class. Looking forward to a great year!
