Social Studies Department

The Social Studies Department seeks to teach students how to critically examine events, societies, and people in history from a variety of perspectives. Students will be encouraged to shape their current culture utilizing the knowledge gained while examining history through its political, social, economic, and geographic trends. Courses are designed thematically, with an emphasis utilizing 21st century critical thinking skills as essential standards. Students will develop skills through the expressive modes of writing, analysis, discussion, and hands-on activities as active historians rather than passive receptors of information.
