Social Studies

The National Council for Social Studies states that "the primary purpose of social studies is to help young people develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world." In order to prepare our students to become productive citizens in our country, it is important that they come to understand how we have evolved into who we are as a nation in a global society. With that in mind, we require all students to study World Studies their freshmen year. As sophomores, students will take Economics/Civics followed by a junior course entitled American History. These three courses will serve to meet the three Carnegie unit requirement in social studies for graduation. In addition to content, the world studies and American history courses will focus on the following skills development: reading, essay writing, analysis of primary source documents and geography.
