Our inquiry based and literacy rich social studies program engages and inspires students to investigate the stories of their community, state, and country. It helps them build deep social studies knowledge, develop critical thinking skills, and discover how they can contribute to our democracy. The inquiry process engages students’ drive to discover, their need to question, and their ability to create solutions that transform the world around them. The inquiry journey starts with a compelling question, moves through a rigorous investigation, and culminates in action. These questions are complex and meaningful, sparking curiosity and driving student learning. Inquiry isn't about filling in blanks on a worksheet. It requires research, conversations, and critical thinking. Students use their learning to take action and create solutions that affect the world.
