Engagement Strategies 

Suggested instructional strategies to support the Social Studies Practices, develop critical thinking, and engage students in collaborative inquiry.


In the seventh grade, students continue their focus on world geography which includes the interrelated components of skills and content knowledge, both of which are necessary to being a geographically informed citizen. Students will use geographic knowledge as a tool for understanding the concepts of economics and the impact of recent history on contemporary events. Students will also focus on spatial patterns of human and physical characteristics of the world and its peoples, and will explore how these patterns form, change over time, and relate to one another in the Eastern Hemisphere. For practical purposes, the Eastern Hemisphere is treated as the areas of Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia, and Oceania.
