History/Social Science

"We study the past to understand the present; we understand the present to guide the future." William Lund

History is not just a thing of the past. It is alive and well, and it is today's events and beliefs that will go on to shape tomorrow's history.  Here at Ramirez Intermediate, our team aims to help students realize the relevance of the past to their everyday lives by providing students with the opportunity to experience common themes in historical events, figures and civilizations across various time periods. 

What We Learn?
7th Grade-  World History encompasses a myriad of topics that shaped our global history during the Medieval Era. Students will study concepts and events that occurred from the early Common Era to the late 1700's through multiple perspectives. Students will analyze the influences of a variety of empires, kingdoms, leaders, religions and social movements that changed the world and affects us today. Students will also identify trends and patterns across civilizations and cultures. 

8th Grade- United States History is where students will learn about the birth of the U.S., along with the triumphs, tragedies and challenges faced by the new nation as it expands its territories and global power. Students will analyze the important events and figures integral in the growth of the United States from a political, economic, geographic, and social perspective in order to develop a strong understanding of how these components relate to and continue to impact their everyday lives. 

Learning Options
General education classes and pre-Advanced Placement (pre-AP) sections are currently offered for both 7th grade World History and 8th Grade U.S. History. While both general and pre-AP will cover the same topics and address the same content standards, those enrolled in pre-AP sections are expected to already be equipped with the foundational skills necessary to demonstrate mastery at a higher level. Our pre-AP courses are designed to prepare students for the rigor and critical thinking skills needed to successfully complete Advanced Placement courses in high school.
