This course guidance attempts to reinforce a key conceptual idea about the world between 350 and 1750 CE - communities of people moved from being interconnected regionally and within hemispheres to interconnection on a global scale. It centers students understanding of the concept of interconnection across scales - personal, community, regional, hemispheric, and global - and invites a discussion of the short and long term consequences of interconnection.
During the 2019-2020 school year, seven teachers and a graduate student joined UCBHSSP in reenvisioning a year of study for seventh graders, informed by the California H-SS Framework's recommendations and the real world considerations of seventh grade classrooms. This page represents a synthesis of our collective learning and collaboration.
