WE PRODUCE GRADUATES EQUIPPED WITH CRITICAL SKILLS AND ABILITIES
The primary purpose of social studies is to help young people make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world.
Our state’s anchor standards compel students to:
- understand the facts, concepts, principles, and perspectives that shape social studies
- apply learning to complex situations and contexts
- think critically about important issues and communicate their findings
- engage in the processes of problem solving and discipline-based inquiry
