Social Studies

SS Logo

The Concept Schools Social Studies teachers focus on teaching our students the information that helps them understand our world and its history through a variety of means but especially through the study of primary sources.
"We are not makers of history. We are made by history."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Reading text and analyzing images from a specific period of time allows our students to walk in the shoes of the people of that period. Simultaneously, we teach our students the social studies skills, including literacy, geography, and historical thinking, that will help them develop into better citizens.
