SOCIAL STUDIES 10
COURSE CODE: MSS – – 10
Social Studies 10 will continue to develop the Historical Thinking, whose rudiments were already presented in Social Studies 9. More in-depth Critical and creative thinking will be doubled now by the development of citizenship skills and the preparation of students to take part in Canadian democracy. A much greater accent will be put on students’ personal and social competency through which they will begin to develop an understanding about Canadian political and social issues. In history, they will learn about 20th Century Canada in relation to world affairs, such as the World Wars, the depression, our place in the United Nations, etc. As mentioned before, the concepts of Historical Thinking will continue to be developed: historical significance, ethical judgement, cause and consequence, continuity and change and analysis of evidence.
