It is important for students of all levels to understand American history as well as global history and geography. Social studies utilizes a combination of statistical information and literature to create an interesting and complex subject. Civil related topics and human society are covered as well. Social studies is taught on all grade levels, however high school students typically delve deeper into the complex humanity related and economic aspects of the subject.
