Socials 11

2017 - 2018

(Please note that in order to meet the transitional curriculum requirements, this is the last year that Social Studies 11 will be a required course).  Social Studies 11 focuses on Canada from 1900 to the present and continues to build on knowledge developed in earlier grades in three main topic areas.  In Geography students focus on economic and environmental issues, including demography, population, standards of living and resourse use.  The History component focuses on political, cultural, and economic issues in Canada, including Canadas role in international affairs.  Finally, the Government section of the course develops students understanding of Canada's three levels of government and the role of the citizen in political and legal systems, the Constitution and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
