Social Studies 11 - Explorations
This is the ideal course for students who are interested in a solid foundation for further Social Studies courses. It offers an opportunity to enhance Social Studies skills such as assessing historical significance, examining various kinds of evidence, considering different perspectives, and making ethical judgements. It will also meet the needs of students who are unsure of what they wish to study at the grade 12 level, as it offers a sampling of various courses including 20th Century World History, Comparative Cultures, Political Studies, and Contemporary Indigenous Studies. This course will satisfy the new Graduation requirements for Social Studies and provide opportunities for individual choice and inquiry in a supportive community of learners.
