Product Description

Develop your high school students' critical thinking and secondary reading skills through social studies with this four-unit SOS elective. Exercises involve reading social studies passages; interpreting graphs, charts, maps, cartoons, diagrams, & photographs that deal with the topics of world history; civics and government; and economics & geography.

Emphasizing a Christian view of history, the contributions of ancient cultures to historiography, and the relationship between history and geography, students will gain an introduction to anthropology and sociology. Students will learn how environment directly affects a group's culture; how Western political thought directly influenced the Declaration of Independence; how to define important political and economic terms; and describe the political structure of the Federal and state governments.

The position of the individual citizen in today's society is examined alongside a review of America's historical background, the formation of her government, and the major changes that have occurred in the nation, reflecting the citizen's privileges and responsibilities to make contributions to the betterment of the world.

Four instructional units. This course was designed to help students gain the skills needed to pass the GED exam; it may also be useful as a review for students who have interrupted their education between high school and college; or for those interested in improving their basic skills before entering credit classes.

Switched-On Schoolhouse Features:

  • The ability to save projects to your computer and upload to the SOS database when finished
  • Automatic grading for 80-95% of student work (parents grade essays, paragraph essays and projects)
  • Multiple reports, from format report cards and transcripts to quick daily activity reports
