Social Studies Department
The goals of the East Stroudsburg Area School District’s Social Studies Department are to prepare students to be reasonable and productive citizens of the United States and of our continually changing and challenging global community. Through an integrated study of the social studies disciplines, students will acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes to become lifelong learners. Social Studies provides content that students will use to understand political, social, historical, and economic issues and apply this knowledge and skill to make effective personal and public decisions. A standards-based Social Studies curriculum builds knowledge of specific discipline content, thinking skills, and fosters within students a commitment to democratic values and civic participation, which are all essential to becoming effective citizens of the United States and global community.
