    (Fri Aug 24, 2018)

    Social Studies

    “The vitality of a democracy depends upon the education and participation of its citizens. Social Studies education is instrumental in achieving this goal. Through a strong social studies program, students will be able to “make informed and reason choices for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world.”  (NCSS, 1994).

      “Social Studies is the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote civic competence.”  (NCSS, 1994)

    In Metuchen, the social studies curriculum is integrated into three strands aligned with the New Jersey Core Content Standards:

    • US History: America in the World;
    • World History/Global Studies; and
    • Active Citizenship in the 21 st  Century.

    Within each strand, the students study multiple facets, which include:

    • Civics, Government, & Human Rights;
    • Geography, People, & the Environment;
    • Economics, Innovation, & Technology; and,
    • History, Cultures, & Perspectives.

      The curriculum embraces an interdisciplinary approach that acknowledges the humanities as a fundamental component of a holistic social studies education. It builds concentrically in both content and complexity and provides a foundation upon which students can thoughtfully engage with the diversity and commonality of the human experience.
