Monomoy History and Social Science Curriculum Vision Statement
Using an interdisciplinary approach, the Monomoy Regional School District’s teachers of history and social science intend that students learn about and from societies, past and present, so that they may become aware of their own place in the world as thoughtful, responsible members of a free and democratic society. Developing citizenship requires knowledge of major world events, recognition of historic patterns, understanding of political developments, and analysis of economic concepts. We encourage students to become active, compassionate, skillful, lifelong learners who understand and respect other cultures.
Students will be able to independently use their learning to:
Understand and critically appraise how recurring patterns in history can inform judgments about events and issues on local, national and global levels.
- Analyze and resolve conflicts in order to work and live in a respectful manner with other cultures.
- Apply knowledge of geographical, political and social concepts to participate as an informed citizen of a democracy.
- Apply concepts and systems of economics to participate productively in a global economy.
