Three-Year Week-by-Week Social Studies Program

The Midgard Education Publishing three-year middle school social studies program is ready to use in your classrooms today. Its curricula are comprehensive and take teachers and students through every week of the school year for three years. Yet it is modular so that each year’s curriculum can also stand alone, and districts can use the program to best fit their standards and frameworks.

Curriculum 2
American History
Recommended for Grade 7
Books:
  • American Hero
  • First Person American

Our approach to American history starts with American Hero, a narrative adventure story that covers the development of the United States up through the Civil War. Because primary-source research is so important, we include First Person American, a comprehensive and unique anthology of non-fiction from a variety of points of view. Through the Guided Discussions and Activities in the curriculum, and based on the readings from these books, students will evaluate the socio-economic conflicts in the Western Hemisphere from the Native American reaction to the First Contact through the evolution of American federalism and its crisis-point over the issue of slavery in the 19th century.

Curriculum 3
Civics
Books:
  • Civil Discourse and How to Survive It
  • The U.S. Constitution: An Owner’s Manual

Curriculum 3
Civics
Recommended for Grade 8
Books:
  • Civil Discourse and How to Survive It
  • The U.S. Constitution: An Owner’s Manual

There is a clear and present need for greater civics instruction in this country. Our civics course combines the international evolution of laws, governments, virtues, and rhetoric in Civil Discourse and How to Survive It with an in-depth look at the American foundational documents in The U.S. Constitution: An Owner’s Manual. With these books, as well as the Guided Discussions and Activities, students will compare and contrast the ethical development of world societies from “Plato to NATO,” and they will analyze and critique how civics has been demonstrated around the world and in the United States. Students will identify and distinguish the ideals set out in American foundational documents and the realities of history.
