CompuTech 8

Learn to compute with TLA’s Head of Technology, Mr. Hewlett, and your very own Raspberry Pi (latest version)! This course guides students through the basics of computing, from hardware to programming to real-world applications, using a flexible project-based approach focused on the Raspberry Pi computing platform. This approach ensures a solid foundation, while allowing students to engage with computing at multiple grade-levels (Grades 8-10), skill-levels (beginner through intermediate), and interests (software development, web-design, robotics, and the Internet of Things).

An interest in technology, the creativity to invent/explore Pi-tech projects, a willingness to invest whatever time and resources are necessary to develop those projects are all that is needed for this course.

A synchronous online option is available to out-of-towners using video-conferencing and other remote-presence technologies.

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).

  • Establish historical significance
  • Use primary source evidence
  • Identify continuity and change
  • Analyze cause and consequence
  • Take historical perspectives, and
  • Understand the ethical dimension of historical interpretations

Further, studies will involve “Lord of the Rings” tying the social studies together with strong reading and writing instruction in a class setting.
