Through a wide range of required and elective courses, the Social Studies department provides interactive methods of instruction to promote historical thinking and enhance students’ analytical skills. Multiple modalities (reading, writing, speaking, viewing, listening, and visually representing) are incorporated into instruction to accommodate students with different learning styles. Teachers tap into current technology such as the flipped classroom, twitter and Google for Education apps in order to reinforce the importance of digital citizenship and responsibility, and enhance their content learning.
