Reinforcing Skills; Preparing for High School

Can you imagine how the American Revolution would have unfolded if Samuel Adams had access to social media? How many people would have shown up for the Boston Tea Party? Applying a 21st Century perspective and tools to the past, our program challenges your 8th Grader to consider the implications of communications technology and the persuasive power of speech. Using Edmentum’s Calvert Learning curriculum to solidify the skills needed to excel in high school, your student will:

  • Sharpen historical thinking, analysis, and research skills while studying America’s history—from pre-history through westward expansion.
  • Develop more nuanced writing and literary analysis skills by examining the impact of tone and structure.
  • Reinforce math skills and concepts learned to date while advancing to the study of functions; bi-variate data; and transformations, congruence, and similarity.
  • Deepen his/her understanding of the properties of sound, light, matter, and energy through virtual labs and digital simulations.
