Course Description

Social Studies is an area of study in Saskatchewan’s Curriculum. Learners will develop an understanding of the connections of people to their families. The purpose of social studies is to help learners know and appreciate the past, understand the present, influence the future, and make connections between events and issues of the past, the present, and the future. Social Studies education is the study of people and their relationships with the world around them. The Social Studies program provides opportunity for learners to develop a sense of themselves as active participants in their world (personal, local, national, and global). Learners are encouraged to make connections to their own lives as they learn. Lesson plans include written instruction, instructional videos, handouts and assessment tools. Learners will complete lessons and projects through sharing stories, communication, practicing and reflecting. Assessment will include ongoing home assessments and submissions/communications to the DLC teacher. Submissions may include PDF documents, audio and video files, photos of projects.
