The Social Studies department is committed to a program of learning that encourages international awareness and understanding so that our students become positive, responsible, and contributing members of our global society. To this end, the High School Social Studies teachers continue ISB’s commitment to the following school-wide long term learning goals:
- Students will use the approaches and methodologies of the social sciences to investigate issues, events, claims, outcomes and evidence.
- Students will analyze issues and events and synthesize interrelated factors to develop their understanding of the relationships and complexities in the world around them.
- Students will apply their skills, knowledge and understandings of human, historical and physical contexts to develop solutions to real-world dilemmas and opportunities.
