Welcome to 7th grade World History and Geography!
I have been a teacher here at Haslett Middle School since 2007, and I love being a Viking. I have two daughters, Grace and Ellie, one who is starting 6th grade this year, and one who will be freshman in high school. I love to travel to new places, to try new foods, and to spend as much time outside as I can, mostly fishing and hiking. I look forward to a fun and exciting school year as we explore the world together.
The 7th grade social studies curriculum focuses on ancient world history and geography, from the origins of early humans, through the Middle Ages. Humankind's journey will be investigated as it transitions from a nomadic lifestyle, to developed agricultural settlements, to the rise and eventual collapse of classical empires. Students will explore patterns of change in continuity by focusing on the expansion of and the decline of civilizations, patterns of geography, and development of political, economic, and societal systems. Students will analyze and evaluate how foundations of society influence the modern era. This class will be interactive for students to enhance their understanding of global connections and their role in the world around them.
