Similar to other areas of study, our Social Studies curriculum works to build upon the foundation of knowledge and skills established in the previous grade. The primary grades (which do not have daily classes) form the beginning point. These basic skills are developed in the later grades. The geography portion works to build a background of experiences relating to particular skills and cultures. The peace and justice portion connects this world of study and the student’s world with the Christian values important to our Catholic school.
In Ohio Studies there is a broad exploration of the unique history of our state and our state government. A comprehensive survey course in American History stresses vocabulary, chronology, cause and effect, theme, generalization, and essay writing.
