Social Studies

Social Studies

The Social Sciences Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) prepare students to be informed citizens who will live in, engage in, and compete in a global environment and society. Students learn to seek knowledge, to seek understanding, and to use that knowledge and understanding for critical analysis regarding the world around them. Through the study of economics, geography, government/civic responsibilities, and history, students cultivate a working knowledge of United States history, of national and world events, and of the various cultures seen throughout the world. The inclusion and formation of literacy skills within the curriculum ensures students will possess the necessary communication skills to prepare them for their future endeavors.

 

A Social Studies Supplemental Resource for Instructional and Assessment Practices has been posted to the Georgia Milestones website under both EOG Resources and EOC Resources.
