Social Studies

Social Studies Department

District Supervisor (6-12): Bridget Borlak;  (856) 293-2072

The Social Studies curriculum addresses a wide array of time periods from ancient lands and cultures through the early United States. With an assortment of technology-based, teacher-created and textbook materials, students survey and investigate the history of previous peoples, their contributions to our world, and their relationship to our society today. Through investigation, collaboration, conversations, and presentations, students study the past and work to develop reading and writing skills which will promote success on NJ State Testing. Units and materials are arranged in a chronological manner, so that the student can understand and recognize the building blocks of contemporary times. Attention is also given to geography, civics, societies, and turning points. Developing academic rigor, student-centered initiatives, high level thinking skills, and intellectual curiosity is stressed.

In Advanced Level courses, due to limited enrollment and highly selective standards, once a student makes a decision to enroll, that student will not be permitted to drop the course. Previous History teacher recommendations are necessary for admittance into the Advanced course.
