24/7 Social Studies – Ages 11 – 13

The goal of the 24/7 Middle School social studies course is to build upon the curiosity and enthusiasm that characterizes middle school students as learners. In doing so we hope to provide experiences that will promote their ability to think critically and creatively, including their ability to solve authentic, complex, non-standard, cross- disciplinary problems. Our aim is to provide opportunities for students to develop the intellectual, technological, social and participatory skills needed to excel in society so that they may become effective global citizens in an interdependent world. Equipped with these skills and a solid base of knowledge that comes with a careful examination of the values and decisions made by those who came before us, we believe that students will be prepared to deal with the critical issues of their time.
