An important goal for middle school social studies is that students can make connections between the social science disciplines and skills so that they will see relationships between events, time and places.
The middle school Social Studies program is presented as a three year, chronological study of American and World History. Unique to our program are the timeline portfolios that students create to represent historical events in both American and World History. Student work and creative cues are added for each unit of study so that student timelines become an individualized, evolving, work-in-progress throughout the middle school years. Additionally, our school-wide STEAM philosophy is centered around the social studies curriculum, which facilitates holistic learning through the integration of all content areas and helps to maximize connections for our students.
