Social Studies educators teach students the content knowledge, intellectual skills, and civic values necessary for fulfilling the duties of citizenship in a participatory democracy. The interconnected nature and fragility of the world make in-depth, relevant social studies instruction essential. Therefore, the mission of the Social Studies Department at Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District is to provide all students with academic and authentic learning opportunities that both ignite their passions for learning and also enhance their abilities and motivations to contribute as citizens in their communities—from the school community to the neighborhood, city, state, national, and global communities. Students will learn to value the political, economic, geographic and social implications of the past and will be able to analyze those influences on the present and future.
