Social Studies

The New York City Department of Education is dedicated to making all students graduate from high school prepared for college, a career, and a future as a productive, critically thinking adult.

In Social Studies students use rich content, unifying themes and big ideas to learn history, geography, economics, civics, citizenship and government. Teachers incorporate literacy in social studies classes to help students ground reading, writing, and discussion in evidence from text.
