Term 1 and 2

Welcome to Social Studies 8!

This page will be one of the many resources available to you, to help you succeed in this class.  After every class, I will post notes, handouts and resources (where possible) along with instructions and reminders.  This won’t take the place of being in class, but will serve as a reminder and a backup to your own note-taking and use of your agenda.

Block F meets on Day 2, in Room 309.  On the first day of class, September 8th, we will meet briefly from 2:05-2:30pm. 

Social Studies 8 is focused on civilisations from 500 to 1600.  We will consider the society and culture, politics and law, economy and technology, and environment of the influential civilisations of this period.  Our guiding question throughout all inquiries, units, themes and discussions will be: what makes societies/civilisations succeed, and what makes them fail?

Social Studies is more than memorizing dates, people, places and things.  It is about developing skills in analysis, interpretation, evaluation, assessment, planning, implementing and considering the issues of civilisations past, present and future.  We will use a framework called Historical Thinking to develop a robust set of tools to take us through this course, and future Social Studies courses.  When we think historically, we think about:

  • Historical Significance
  • Evidence
  • Continuity and Change
  • Cause and Consequence
  • Historical Perspective
  • Moral Judgment

See http://www.histori.ca/benchmarks/ for more details on this framework.

In each class, we will think critically, work independently and collaboratively, and foster a safe classroom environment to allow ourselves and our classmates to take risks as we challenge our assumptions to lead us to new understandings and connections.

In addition to the specific content matter, we will have ongoing discussions of current events.  Students are encouraged to keep abreast of current affairs- reading a variety news sources (print or online) and taking in radio/television news is encouraged.
Before each unit, a detailed outline will be distributed.  These will be subject to change based on student interest, time constraints and other factors. In general, the course will flow as follows:

Term 1 (Fall) Rise and Fall of Civilisations, European Middle Ages
Term 2 (Winter) Early China, Early Arab World, Islamic Spain and Ottoman Empire
Term 3 (Spring) European Renaissance, Explorers and the Rise of the Nation-State
