6th Grade

The sixth-grade course, World Geography:  Africa, Asia, and Oceania, covers the continents of Africa, Asia and Australia.  The content explores geography, cultures, history, and the Civic Core (i.e., a study of America society and politics, and other people’s ideas and lives both past and present that have influenced the development of the American democracy). 

7th Grade

The seventh-grade course, World Geography:  Europe and the Americas, covers the continents of Europe, South America, and North America.  The content explores geography, culture, history, and the Civic Core (i.e., a study of American society and politics, and other people’s ideas and lives both past and present that have influenced the development of the American democracy). 

8th Grade

The Eighth Grade United States History classes cover the time period of 1607 to 1880, starting with European Settlements of North America and concluding with Reconstruction of the U. S. after the Civil War.  Throughout the course civics is integrated into the curriculum. 

To further advance students at Carver Middle School, we have instituted and broadened the spectrum of our Social Studies department by incorporating learning strategies that promote student-learning.  These strategies are:

  • Guided Reading

  • Shared Reading

  • Successmaker

  • Further Technology

  • Rotating Stations

And since this is a historic voting year, Carver Middle School will have a mock election teaching students the overall voting process. 

  • Lessons will take place in the classroom (including how to make informed decisions)

  • An election precinct will be created

  • Voter registration cards will be issued

  • Voting booths will be created

  • Students will be issued voting ballots from "KidsVoting"

  • Students will cast their ballots

By allowing students to participate and understand the importance of voting, it also demonstrates the significance of their civic duty and responsibility as American citizens.
