Social Studies – Group A1
In Group A1, students will seek reliable, relevant resources to gather information about the events that have shaped the political history of the world. Students will evaluate the validity of their primary and secondary resources used in class. Connections will be drawn between political events in past decades to the world today. They will discern which was worth more consideration a newspaper article describing an event or a personal letter from an eyewitness. Students will collaborate with their English class to build writing skills on projects.
