State History

Offered to Grades 7-8
1 semester (Semester or Summer Term)

Make history come alive through this exploration of the cultural tides and events that have shaped your state. The State History elective for grades 7–8 is a supplemental course that provides interesting and informative lessons on the development of your state's government, the resources that helped birth the place in which you live, and the forces of culture that have shaped the status quo.

Not only will the State History course add depth and meaning to students’ experience of the place in which they live, but this one-semester course is also designed to give students extended practice in conducting research and writing reports, while covering topics like the state capitol, important state figures, a trip through the state, Christian heritage in the state, and more.
