Social studies education develops right from kindergarten and into high school to help students understand their place in the world. Social Studies teaches children their roles and responsibilities particularly in relation to social and civic affairs. It helps students develop critical thinking abilities, prepares them to participate competently and productively as concerned citizens and teaches them to address societal and global concerns using literature, technology and other identifiable community resources. Social studies include history, geography, political science, sociology, economics and civics and it is an integral part in ensuring well-rounded education in the K-12 curriculum.
Likewise, Social Studies allow students to: o Value their roots o Explore their pasts and understand their contexts, o Appreciate the interrelationships between people across time, environments and cultures while developing civic efficacy o Comprehend how societies work o Develop the knowledge and skills which will help them to make informed and reasoned decisions that are required of responsible and active citizens of a democratic society in an independent world o Help them to appreciate diversity and develop respect for oneself and others while learning to be compassionate and tolerant. o Learn the skills of critical analysis and self-reflection, allowing them to develop their own identities.
