Welcome to Mr. Kilmartin's 8th Grade Social Studies Page!
8th grade social studies in Carlisle takes a thematic approach to U.S. history. We begin with a study of the history of our Constitutional rights. A close examination of the United States Constitution provides the background for our study of rights, power, freedom, prejudices, and social movements during the years 1791-1865. We finish the year with a study of the World Wars and the Holocaust, relying on the framework of Facing History and Ourselves.
