IB MYP United States Hist (278201H)
All high school social science courses adhere to the Social Science 3.0 Framework and the Common Core State Standards with an emphasis on teaching the social sciences through literacy-based skills that support reading, writing, speaking, and listening. The standards are designed to be relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge, skills, and rigor students need for success in college, career, and civic engagement. Social science instruction will provide students with the content knowledge and skill sets that enable them to ask and answer challenging questions, explore what it means to seek the common good, and develop essen al literacy and communication skills. Students will learn how to access and apply social science content through a variety of complex texts that focus around the themes identified in the Social Science 3.0 Framework: Identity, Power, Conflict and Compromise, and Justice and Injustice. The service-learning requirement can be embedded into any Social Science (or other discipline) course.
