Welcome to the 6th Grade Social Studies course –The Western Hemisphere.This year, we will be exploring the region’s geography, history, economics, culture, and current challenges. As we analyze the Western Hemisphere, there will be a particular focus on how the concepts of race, class, and gender have shaped human life in this area. Beyond understanding facts and concepts, we will also be sharpening critical thinking, reading, and writing skills. You will be expected to analyze texts, writing thoughtfully, and creatively create original projects. Further, we will be using various types of sources to recreate the past. These sources will include maps, letters, speeches, histories, artwork, tools, documentaries, charts, & graphs.
