Global History, Grade 8

In Eighth Grade, our central theme is globalization. Our key focus within globalization is how trade and technology have made the world into a more connected interdependent place but has also led to worldwide conflicts and economic problems. We do this through a series of aligned historical events which are outlined in the following units of study:  

  • The Industrial Revolution  
  • The Age of Imperialism  
  • World War I  
  • The Worldwide Great Depression  
  • The Rise of Totalitarianism in Europe and Asia  
  • World War II  
  • The Holocaust and the Nuremberg Trials
