Social Studies Department
The Monroe Township High School Social Studies program is designed to ensure students of varying abilities an opportunity to master the content and skills of this discipline. Our Social Studies program offerings immerse our students in the study and interpretation of the ideas, beliefs, systems and principles that represent historical perspectives that form contemporary life. Student ability to access the events and achievements of the past directly affects their ability to participate and function effectively in a democratic society. Our courses are structured to provide students with a variety of rich activities and learning opportunities that enable him/her to understand and appreciate history as a part of the overall human experience. It is important that students use these conceptual understandings to further their personal goals and, through active citizenship, become effective, active members of our global, digital community.
