Social Studies

A strong and effective Social Studies program helps students make sense of the world in which they live, it allows them to make connections between major ideas and their own lives, and it helps them see themselves as members of the world community. It is the mission of the Lisle District 202 Social Studies Department to utilize the tools of the Common Core to provide students with the historical thinking skills to become good citizens, neighbors, members of society and informed participants on a local, national, and global level. With the culmination of their studies, students will be prepared to successfully navigate the requirements of capstone courses. Social Studies must also help students understand, respect, and appreciate the commonalities and differences that give people character and identity. The complexities of history can only be fully understood within an appreciation and analysis of diversity, multiple perspectives, interconnectedness, interdependence, context and enduring themes.

The Social Studies department works to refine our instructional practice, coordinate curriculum and general learning philosophies, and stay informed regarding best practices and pedagogical innovation.
