Social Studies

Social Studies Home

The Social Studies Department is dedicated to the support of the Mission and Vision of the Parkway School District.   Through the efforts of dedicated professionals in every classroom across our great district we work to ensure that "all students are capable, curious, and confident learners who understand and respond to the challenges of an ever-changing world."

Through the creation and implementation of a guaranteed and viable curriculum we focus on the "Enduring Understandings" and "Essential Questions" of our content - those BIG IDEAS that are at the heart of our discipline. 

Rather than focusing solely on the memorization of isolated dates and events, we engage our students in a variety of relevant experiences that help prepare them for their next Social Studies challenge and to help them "transfer their prior learning to new demands, in and out of school."
