8th Grade Curriculum – What’s Included

Calvert uses formats and media that optimize the learning experience. Since families differ in their preferences and needs, Calvert offers two options:

Digital + Print Experience – Calvert’s renowned curriculum re-imagined for 2018/19. It features engaging online learning and the added convenience of printed materials that complement the digital experience. See the Materials Included >

 
Digital Experience – the same fundamental Calvert curriculum, all online.

Both options include: Calvert’s step-by-step online lessons, e-texts, projects and assessments that gauge student understanding. Courses also include supplemental resources from leading educational publishers such as Britannica School, World Atlas, BrainPOP Jr. Interactive Activities and Discovery Education STREAMING depending on the subject.
