Social Studies

Course Overview

We will be studying the social, political, economic, and cultural issues of the US that have shaped our nation from the formation of our country following the American Revolution to issues of today. Over the course of the semester, you will develop a "sense of history" and/or learn the rights and responsibilities of citizenship that will help you to become a valuable and productive part of our democracy.
