Social Studies

The National Council for Social Studies defines social studies as the integrated study of the Social Sciences and Humanities to promote civic competence. Within the school program, social studies provides coordinated, systematic study drawing upon such disciplines as anthropology, archaeology, economics, geography, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology, religion, and sociology, as well as appropriate content from the humanities, mathematics, and natural sciences. In essence, social studies promotes knowledge of and involvement in civic affairs. Moreover, because civic issues such as health care, crime, and foreign policy are multidisciplinary in nature, understanding these issues and developing resolutions to them require multidisciplinary education. These characteristics are the key defining aspects of social studies.

Here at Hopkins Junior High School we are dedicated to teaching the 7th and 8th Grade History-Social Science Content Standards.

These standards can be found on the State of California, Department of Education website: CDE.
