Social Studies

Goals and Objectives

The Social Studies Department hopes to foster interest in the past and present to prepare our students for the future.  Our courses offer a diverse look into the events and personalities that shaped our world.  The focus of each class is not necessarily pointed toward rote memorization but on understanding situations as well as the causes and consequences of actions.  As much as possible we attempt to integrate technology into this process.  We use the Media Center desktops for writing and research and Smart Boards for visual presentations, demonstrations and to enhance lectures.  Primary sources are applied to supplement student’s understanding of secondary material whenever it is appropriate.

We offer:

World History

United States History

American History II
Advanced Placement American Government

Career Psychology
