Philosophy:  The social studies curriculum is designed to increase students' knowledge of the world and promote greater awareness of its diverse ethnic and cultural elements.  It also reinforces the understanding of how a highly differentiated United States society maintains cohesion through adherence to the principles found in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.  As members of our society, students are entitled to expect that their concerns and social origins have a place in the social studies curriculum.  As a result, they will acquire the skills, knowledge, and perspectives necessary to achieve success in this global age.

 

Course Overview:  The curriculum emphasis in the sixth grade is placed on the geographic and cultural study of selected regions.  Students will study Canada, Europe, Australia, and Latin America.  Each course of study will focus on a geographic overview, historic development, people and culture, political systems, and economic systems.  Students will also look at Financial Management in terms of future income, spending, savings, and investing.
