Grade 7 Pacific Northwest Studies: Honors Social Studies

Pacific Northwest Studies: Honors Social Studies 7 is a course available to ambitious students seeking a classroom where there is rigor and complexity beyond what is found in the regular junior high classroom. It is a year-long, integrated course focused on Washington State and linked through content, theme and skill development with the language arts curriculum. Students will study the Pacific Northwest through the geography, history, culture, economic, and political systems of the region. In addition, students will study Washington state trade, trade partners, and the importance of technology to the region. Students will be expected to complete supplemental reading on assigned topics, projects, research, and reports. When students pass second semester of this course, they fulfill the Washington State history and government graduation requirement.
