Mission of Social Studies
• It is the responsibility of our curriculum to
prepare students for life in a complex and evolving world. Students should be
ready to perform in college, careers, and citizenship.
• Through the OPS secondary school experience in social studies classrooms, we
expect our students to be able to compete to perform complicated tasks and
confront and solve problems with innovation and social consciousness.
Vision of Social Studies
• The focus of Social Studies moving forward
will be two-fold:
I. Develop Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessments that pushes students to
learn, acquire, and utilize 21stCentury Social Studies Skills
II. Present scenarios that require students to critically think through the
vantage point of a historian, economist, geographer, or civic-minded citizen
