Social Studies 11 continues the study of contemporary Canada, which was introduced in grade 10.  The focus at the grade 11 level is government, politics, and recent Canadian history.  Students will, in addition, examine Canada’s relations with the rest of the world.  The transition to a global perspective will be made through an investigation of such major concerns as population growth, the distribution of resources, and the impact of industrialization and technology on modern society.  Geographic knowledge and skills previously acquired are reinforced and expanded.  The discussion of current events is considered integral to this course.
