Middle School Social Studies
Students who understand history, geography, current events, and the other social studies will have a greater ability to make decisions, to participate in democracy, and to be better citizens of their communities, nation, and the world. Social studies is naturally interesting and vitally important!
All middle school students work to develop strong study, research, and presentation skills, demonstrated through several projects through the school year. Regular quizzes and written tests are utilized to assess learning. Students gain an appreciation (and even a love!) of history and build important life skills like writing, critical thinking, reading for meaning, and civic responsibility.
