Projects emphasize gathering information from texts and conducting research to form opinions which students present through a variety of methods. Learners increase their skills by interpreting the ubiquitous information available in our digital age and presenting their analysis through digital means. They are tasked with creating a presentation to the leaders of world nations regarding human colonization of space and writing an art critique by taking virtual tours of the world’s most famous museums.
Students develop a strong conceptual understanding of Math skills and concepts. They draw on problem-solving skills and prior knowledge to simplify and solve algebraic expressions, approximate probability and relative frequency, and construct different geometric figures. Students learn to identify the plane shapes, and then use those skills to assemble a three-dimensional object.
Engaging in virtual labs and diverse instructional materials creates a rich learning experience. Grade 7 students explore Life Science through inquiry and scientific thought. Topics include cell function, processes of plants, animal behavior, the systems of the human body, and ecology.
Students explore the essential elements, themes, and branches of the geography of the Eastern and Western hemispheres. They delve into the founding principles and practices of U.S. Government and explore topics in economics. Students learn by completing projects such as drafting public policy on an issue they care about and taking steps to effect positive change in their community.
Students apply concepts from Art History, incorporating what they have learned about trilithons and step pyramids, to design various buildings and structures.
This course provides students with a basic understanding of the importance of staying active throughout their lifetime. Students will learn about exercise safety, team and individual sports, nutrition and myths and misperceptions about nutrition and drugs.
The 7th Grade program far exceeded my expectations. As a retired teacher, I was impressed with the quality and depth of the curriculum. It challenged my grandson, but taught him critical thinking skills that he will use for the rest of his life.— Elizabeth Z., Calvert Grandmother
