CCGPS Elementary Social Studies Kindergarten - 5th Grade

The Department of Teaching and Learning is committed to the successful implementation of the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards in the area of English language arts and reading. This curriculum promotes high expectations for its teachers and students and results in meaningful student learning. All students must have the opportunities and resources to develop the language skills they need to pursue life's goals and to compete in a 21st century workplace.

 

CCGPS Kindergarten - 5th Grade

Social Studies, at the most basic level, is the study of people. Through required courses that include content from history, geography, political science and economics, students are provided with a basic background and critical thinking skills necessary to become effective and productive citizens.

According to the National Council for the Social Studies, teaching social studies powerfully and authentically begins with a deep knowledge and understanding of the subject and its unique goals. Social studies programs prepare students to identify, understand, and work to solve the challenges facing our diverse nation in an increasingly interdependent world. Education for citizenship should help students acquire and learn to use the skills, knowledge, and attitudes that will prepare them to be competent and responsible citizens throughout their lives. Competent and responsible citizens are informed and thoughtful, participate in their communities, are involved politically, and exhibit moral and civic virtues.
