- Social Studies
Level: 10, 11, 12
This course is designed to aid the student in exploring and understanding different current issues in modern America. Background information will be used to build a foundation for studying each particular subject which may include independent research, guest speakers, and in-class lectures to explain the history of a situation or series of events. The topics for this class will include an in-depth look at a variety of American social institutions and conventions including socialization, education, race, social class, crime, violence, and deviance. The topics to be studied will be based, to a great extent, on what is “current” in the news at the time.
