Seventh Grade Social Studies

In our social studies class, we divide our studies into the following areas:

 

1.  History of the Mediterranean basin from the late antiquity to the Renaissance and reformation

2. Literature: Virgil’s Aeneid; Ovid’s Metamorphoses; Omar Khayyam’s RubaiyatArabian NightsBeowulf; Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur; Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales; Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.

3. History and contemporary study of Christianity and Islam

4. Natural sciences: with an emphasis on Galen; Ptolemy; Ibn Sina …

5. Art and architecture from the late antiquity to the Renaissance

6. About 1/3 of our studies is dedicated to current events awareness and media literacy.  We focus on global issues such as the Palestine/Israel one-state or two-state controversy; Syrian civil war; Russian/Ukraine crisis; North Korea’s emergent role in world politics.  We look at domestic news with a critical eye with the goal of defeating narrow-mindedness.  We discuss how an appreciation for news and our civic institutions is a key step toward self-empowerment and advancement.
