SOCIAL STUDIES

What is Social Studies education?
Social Studies in Washington State contributes to developing responsible
citizens in a culturally diverse, democratic society within an interdependent
world. Social Studies equips learners to make sound judgments and take
appropriate actions that will contribute to sustainable development of human
society and the physical environment. 
Social Studies comprises the study of relationships among people, and between
people and the environment. Social Studies recognizes the challenges and
benefits of living in a diverse cultural and ideological society. The
resulting interactions are contextualized in space and time and have social,
political, economic, and geographical dimensions. 
Based on appropriate investigations and reflections within Social Studies,
students develop distinctive skills and a critical awareness of the human
condition and emerging spatial patterns and the processes and events that
shape them.
