View Lithonia Middle School
 Social Studies Department
The Social Studies Frameworks provide one way that teachers, schools, and districts might organize and teach the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) within units. Units and frameworks align to connecting themes and enduring understandings that transcend units and courses. Ultimately, the enduring understandings are what students will take from a course that applies to life beyond school. All units and frameworks are designed to promote inquiry.
Social Studies for the middle school grades focuses on  a variety of world cultures.  The focus for 6th grade is Latin America, Canada, Europe and Australia.  The 7th Grade World Studies emphasizes Africa, South West Asia (Middle East) and Southern and Eastern Asia. Georgia is the focus for 8th Grade students, which includes in depth studies of the land, people and its history.
