Social Studies

 

Introductory Statements

I want to

  • broaden my understanding of the world by learning about human activities and achievements in the past and present
  • develop my understanding of my own values, beliefs and cultures and those of others
  • develop my understanding of the principles of democracy and citizenship through experiences of critical and independent thinking
  • engage in activities which encourage enterprising attitudes
  • develop an understanding of concepts that stimulate enterprise and influence business

Example from Experiences and Outcomes
I can contribute to a discussion of the difference between my needs and wants and those of others around me.

See SOC 1-16a on page13 of Social Studies: Experiences and Outcomes.
