Social Studies

SOCIAL STUDIES 

Instruction will orient each student’s attention on demonstrating reading, writing, and speaking skills within the C3 Social Studies Framework which emphasizes Civic Life, Economics, Geography, and History. More specifically, students will learn to articulate the results of inquiry into historical instances regarding progress,  change, conflict, resolution, revolution, power, the role of government, rights and responsibilities, values, diversity, individualism, national identity, opportunity, and global interdependence.   

A core mission of the Social Studies Department is to help students to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse democracy in an interdependent global community.
