Language ArtsThe class will consist of literature study/analysis through 6-7 novels, discussion, projects, written assignments, and vocabulary study.  We will also cover Hake Grammar.

The Story of Science Class–  We will use the second text from Joy Hakim’s series “The Story of Science” titled, “Newton in the Center.”  This is a study of science through a historical perspective and will encompass history, philosophy, and scientific theories and discoveries.

“Readers will travel back in time to ancient Babylonia, Egypt, and Greece. They will meet the world’s first astronomers, mathematicians, and physicists and explore the lives and ideas of such famous people as Pythagoras, Archimedes, Brahmagupta, al-Khwarizmi, Fibonacci, Ptolemy, St. Augustine, and St. Thomas Aquinas. Hakim will introduce them to Aristotle—one of the greatest philosophers of all time—whose scientific ideas dominated much of the world for eighteen centuries.”

This science/history class will use the Story of Science: Aristotle Leads the way textbook, corresponding workbook, journals, videos, websites, research, and hands-on activities & science experiments in class.  I encourage you to look up info on the book to learn more for yourself!

Note: The 7th & 8th grade class will “ramp things up”, teaching notetaking, test-taking, time management, and study skills needed in high school and beyond.  Grades will be given in these courses.  This course will be reading more challenging novels and will dive into deeper literary concepts such as allegory, satire, and symbolism.
