Social Studies

Social Studies in Junior High provides opportunities for students to develop the attitude, skills and knowledge to become engaged, active, informed and responsible citizens. This will be done by looking at the history of Canada through many different perspectives. The reflection will be expanded by looking at the birth of western civilization, the isolation of a society, and the collision of two different world views. Finally, we will further our analysis of the Canadian society by observing the different systems present in government and their impacts on citizens.

Students will be assessed using the following stems:

  • Demonstrates knowledge and understanding of citizenship and identity
  • Explores events and issues from different points of view
  • Demonstrates skills and processes for inquiry and research
  • Communicates ideas in an informed and persuasive manner
