Social Science

Our Mission

Social Studies learning and teaching encourages integrated, active, challenging, values based and 

meaningful experiences. In addition, the program recognizes the need for a significant knowledge 

base leading to an appreciation of a diversity of thought and higher order thinking and inquiry.

 

Social studies education must prepare our young citizens for a nation and a world marked by 

globalization, interdependence, human diversity and societal change through the teaching

of democratic values and traditions.
