SS 11: Explorations in Social Studies 11


SS 10

The aim of Social Studies 11 is to develop thoughtful, responsible, active citizens who are able to acquire the requisite information to consider multiple perspectives and to make reasoned judgments. Social Studies 11 provides students with opportunities to reflect critically upon events and issues in order to examine the present, make connections with the past, and consider the future. Some of the topics explored in this course are how to be informed and engaged citizens, how the rapid development of technology has changed us, and how Canada’s Indigenous peoples are reclaiming their cultures despite the effects of colonialism.
