Social Studies

It is the goal of the Social Studies division that all students will acquire the habits of mind needed to become reflective and responsible citizens of our nation and world.

The courses taught in Orange County are designed to encourage active learning among our students so that the students will:

  • Understand the significance of the past and its influence on the present.
  • Be mindful of both change and continuity in our lives.
  • Appreciate the challenge and opportunities created by an increasingly interdependent global community.
  • Recognize the personal character traits of people who have made a difference in history.
  • Read various types of information effectively while learning to ask appropriate questions to distinguish fact from conjecture.
  • Research information using a variety of sources and communicate effectively.
