Social Studies




The Social Studies department at Bishop Canevin has designed its courses to provide opportunities for the students to acquire knowledge in the fields of history, the behavioral sciences and political science; to provide for the development of procedural (access) skills – e.g. using references, maps, graphs, tables, timelines, etc.; to provide for the development of information processing skills – specifically, inferencing, comparing and contrasting, classifying, hypothesizing, generalizing and interpreting and, to provide for a hierarchy of skill development, from the simple to the complex. Students are also exposed to technology and learn how to do presentations using modern technology programs and presenting in front of their classmates. Students are also encouraged to examine their values in the context of historical events and current issues.
