Social Studies is a discipline of study that helps young people understand their place in the world.  It aids students in developing the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions in our complex and diverse society.  Incorporating such academic fields as geography, history, economics, sociology, and political science, this discipline gives us a greater understanding of human societies in the past, which gives us more insight into the present, and the future.  Social Studies is an important discipline that employs skills like critical thinking to help prepare young people to be ‘citizens’ of an increasingly complex and interdependent world.
