Teachers of History and Social Science in grades PreK through 12 encourage students to think about how words, choices, and actions shape today's world. While learning the value of diversity and the confidence to participate in social groups in Lower School, students acquire skills and study concepts that foster civic responsibility. In Middle School, students examine broad geographical, chronological, and thematic topics in American and World Studies. In Upper School, students deepen their historical understanding and complete projects and courses that increasingly examine the contributions of social science, including geography, government, and economics. Stressing the refinement of essential skills in critical reading, clear writing, and persuasive speaking that will benefit students beyond ASA, teachers of History and Social Science from all divisions require students to analyze primary and secondary sources and to express information and ideas with clarity and conviction.
