Social Studies combines social sciences and humanities to help students develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for the good of everyone in a culturally diverse, democratic society.
The goal is for our students to taken what they learn about their community, nation, and world and continue to shape our future in a positive way.
Students will learn how the world works and the influence geography has on our daily lives.
They will learn "What is geography" by studying the five themes of geography - location, human-environment interaction, place, region, and movement - as well as the use of geographer tools, the effects of climate, and landforms of major regions.
Students will also be able to identify major political, physical, and economic regions as well as explain how common characteristics can link and divide regions.
Students will learn to identify, compare, and contrast various cultural traits - language, ethnic heritage, social systems, religion, and traditions - and how they impact societies.
They will also look at how the geography of an area impacts the population.
Students will also be able to identify and describe the economic and political traits of a region.
Students will look at the history of the United States up until the late 1870s. They will learn about the causes, events, and ideas of the American Revolution and the Revolutionary Era. Students will also look at the formation of the United States' government and The Constitution.
Students will also learn about the Civil War. They will look at what led up to the war and how the country recovered in the Reconstruction Era.
Finally, students will learn about the American social justice system.
