• 7th grade world civilizations includes the time periods between 1350 and 1990, Renaissance to the Cold War years.   The first semester covers the Renaissance, Revolutionary period (English, American, French, and Latin American) and Industrial Revolution.  Second semester picks up with "imperialism" leading up to WWI.  We then cover WWI, years between the world wars, WWII and wrap up with the Cold War years.  Our textbook is new this year and includes an online portion.  I will introduce students to this  early in the school year.  They will be able to access it through the district website.
