Social Studies

The Lemont High School Social Studies Department believes that students should develop the following characteristics:
• Use of cooperation and collaboration in decision making
• Utilization of analytical and critical thinking skills
• Enhancement of self image
• Understanding of how to function as effective and contributing members of a democratic society

Courses offered within the Social Studies curriculum help students demonstrate an understanding and competency of historical and economic principles as participating citizens in our ever-changing society.

Based on abilities and course level, students are expected to:
• Attain historical literacy by learning about world events, traditions, patterns and changes
• Make informed decisions that transcend time and cultures
• Understand the human experience by learning how individual and group behaviors impact diverse populations
• Achieve economic literacy by applying the process of choice and the allocation of resources and how they relate to individuals, groups and societies
• Use democratic principles to act responsibly and productively within their community and take part in participatory citizenship

Grading Standards: Student grades are determined based on their performance in the areas of research, discussion, writing and examinations.
