SOCIAL STUDIES DEPARTMENT
True Justice in Systems and Stories
In Social Studies classes, you will learn to critically examine events, societies, and people in history from a variety of perspectives. You will be encouraged to shape your current culture using the knowledge you gain 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. You will develop skills through the expressive modes of writing, analysis, discussion, and hands-on activities as an active historian rather than as a passive receptor of information.
