St. Odilo 6th Grade
Junior High English Language Arts classes focus on improving the students’ knowledge of grammar, writing, and analysis. Strong communication skills are paramount in paving the way for each student in academia as well as day to day life. Students will apply these lessons to both informal and formal writing and audiovisual assignments throughout the course of the year.
Sixth and seventh grade Social Studies encompasses world history, map skills, and societal and cultural development. Students will study how world history is affected by maps and time, memory, human migration, agricultural and urban revolutions, belief systems, the order of early societies, and the influence of the Catholic faith. We also place a strong influence on current events and understanding history’s impact on modern society and culture.
