Eighth Grade Introduction to High School Project
This curriculum will be designed to introduce eight graders to what they will be experiencing in high school. The course will look at all 9-12 courses with a brief description of what the courses contain, how they will fit together in their high school education and what these courses will mean to the student in college/tech school and their adult lives. The purpose of this course is to allow eight graders to think about what high school will mean to them academically as well as socially. The social part of high school will also be examined including school activities, interaction with older students and health and safety issues that will be encountered in high school. Also included in this course will be the use of the advanced technology they will be using based on the technology they learned in middle school. Because this course will be digital it can be customized to accommodate any school district in the country.
