Social Studies seeks to understand the relationship between change and continuity across eras. Geographic, political, social, cultural, economic, ideological, technological and demographic factors as well as issues of gender and religion help define, shape and drive civilizations. Students will develop a sensitivity to and empathy for other viewpoints and differences that can unite or divide human beings. As they learn how to understand individual agency, societal interactions, historical genealogy and the natural environment, students will grow in self-knowledge and in recognition of themselves as global citizens.
