Subject: Dependent & independent events

I am searching for input for my 8th grade teachers who are having some questions about our 8th grade math standard that only includes independent events in probability because dependent events are in the standard for the 9th grade. I would like to hear some different opinions about whether the two topics should be taught together - or if separate is better based on your experience, along with your rationale about why you feel the way you do. Thanks!
