8th Grade Social Studies focuses on the study of Indigenous Peoples and the development of Washington State, in the context of the late 19th Century into the 20th Century of United States History. The course is aligned with the Washington State Social Studies Standards and utilizes adopted core LWSD resources with Since Time Immemorial (Indigenous Peoples of the Salish Sea) as stated in Senate Bill 5433. Through this course students will advance their social studies content knowledge, as well as develop their social studies skills through activities such as inquiry, research, writing, and civil discourse. Though the course is based in historical knowledge, current events will also be incorporated. Multiple perspectives are a core component of this course and students are expected to be critical thinkers who engage honestly, but respectfully with their peers, in accordance with LWSD student expectations.
