Welcome to Mr. Behne's World Studies Class!
In 7th grade Humanities, we will be exploring the Eastern Hemisphere of the world. We will be focusing on 4 main areas this year, SW Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, East and South Asia, and finally Russia. We begin the school year with a general unit over geography concepts, terms, and applications, and then move into each of the units listed above. We will spend almost a quarter on each of the 4 regions of the world. Each week of the school year, the students are assigned a "weekly question" which in an IB school works on their Learner Profile trait of reflection. These along with projects, quizzes, and other classroom assignment are the ways that our students are scored throughout the school year.
