The South Carolina Journey is a textbook program that meets the 2011 state-approved South Carolina Social Studies Academic Standards for Grade 8. The student textbook covers the history of South Carolina from prehistoric times to the present, with an emphasis on how the state’s history coincides with the history of the nation as intended by the state standards.
The South Carolina Journey Student Guide includes five activity pages for each lesson in the Teacher Guide: Activator, Key Vocabulary, Comprehension Strategy, Writing Portfolio, and Review Activity. These activities support the material in the Student Edition and promote critical thinking.
