The primary goal of Social Studies is to help produce responsible citizens. Students and teachers do this by asking questions, talking to one another and accessing technology in addressing the issues that arise in class. In studying the past, the distribution of wealth and the face of this place called earth, students will have an understanding of the world we live in today.
