ABOUT SOCIAL STUDIES IN ORANGE
The traditional objective of a social studies program is to help students become informed, compassionate, and active participants in the world around them by equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and civic values necessary for responsible citizenship. This objective is one that our students are taught to meet throughout their time in our schools. However, students in our social studies courses also learn to become skillful readers, sophisticated writers, and critical thinkers. They examine historical documents, weigh evidence, conduct research, and share their findings. In short, they do the work of historians.
