Welcome to Humanities 7-8 Blended! We are on an exciting adventure together, as we weave through Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, and World Exploration history, while improving all of our Language Arts skills. It will be a diverse year, including research, group work, oral and media presentations, mapping, videos to watch, and novels to read!

Our year consists of three terms, each with an average of 9 classes. It will be a push to cover the entire curriculum, and thus there will be video/reading/writing homework assigned for weeks when we are not in class. If homework is done and completed when assigned and due, this will be a very successful year for you!

As well, this course runs in a FLIPPED classroom model. This means that much of your research will be done at home, through readings, short videos or podcasts, and your group work and assignments will be worked on in class.

Major Units & Topics

Because this class is a humanities class, Socials and English are woven together, sometimes seamlessly. Thus at all times, grammar, punctuation, word usage, language, and description are marked. Spelling ALWAYS counts. As the year progresses you need to show a clear understanding of big Socials concepts (settlement patterns, economy and trade, and human rights), as well as crucial Language Arts aspects (thesis statements, paragraph structure, dress ups, essay format, language usage).

Prerequisites

Time Commitment

3 hours of work in class each week and another 3-5 hours of learning at home.

Earn credit for Social Studies 7 AND English Language Arts 7 while exercising your creative side. As you explore everything from the earth’s origins to the complexity of war and peace in the world today, you will also create your very own island. Bit by bit, you will develop your imaginary island as a demonstration of the things you’ve learned in each unit. In addition, you will be setting yourself up as a stronger writer, which will stand you in good stead for coursework in the future!

The demands on the parent are remarkably minimal for this course. Especially if the student is a diligent, independent worker, it is likely that this will be a “lighter” load with regards to required support.

Major Units & Topics
Assessment

Forums, assignments and quizzes to support reading and responding.

Creative opportunities to demonstrate knowledge (creating their own island.)

Foundational grammar and writing skills.

Prerequisites

It is helpful to understand and have skill with email. Being an independent learner (or one who is willing to proactively reach out for help) is an asset.

STEM 7 integrates the learning requirements for Science, Technology and Math into one course. The activities encompass a variety of online and hands-on tasks that are broken down into a weekly schedule within the course so students can easily follow along and ensure they are on track to finish by the end of the year.

This course uses a variety of Gizmos, worksheets, online resources, videos, and hands-on activities. There are two textbooks for the course that supplement learning for both math and science. A student should plan to spend at least three hours each week to gain the most learning from the activities in the course and remain on track to finish in June. Parents should plan to help their child manage their time, check that all tasks from each week have been completed and provide assistance for a concept that is proving harder to learn. The teacher will generally include parents in responses to student questions however students are expected to contact the course teacher independently as needed.
