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.
