Welcome to Ms. Chernov's Home Page.

Social Studies

Please see attached course outlines for course information

Students will examine the origins, values, and components of competing ideologies. They will explore multiple perspectives regarding relationships among individualism, liberalism, common good and collectivism. An examination of various political and economic systems will allow students to determine the viability of the values of liberalism. Developing understandings of the roles and responsibilities associated with citizenship will encourage students to respond to emergent global issues.

Parents and students are asked to remember that the process is just as important as the end result! Students will have an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding through a variety of assessment tools. Students and parents are asked to keep a close eye on the mark in PowerSchool.
