Social Studies Department

The Stroudsburg Senior High School social studies department has as its goal the preparation of our students for post-high school experiences. It is recognized that these experiences will be varied and that a sound background in social studies will provide the tools for young people to succeed regardless of their future course. To that end, the curriculum provides an opportunity to investigate a variety of disciplines and to develop essential skills.

To enable students to succeed in our democratic society, the department provides instruction in the following interdependent areas: History, Government, Geography, Economics, Sociology, Psychology, and Cultural Life. In addition, the department provides development of the following skills: research and writing, listening and speaking, and critical thinking. In today’s world, it is necessary that all students understand themselves and the world in which they live in order to be productive citizens of their local, state, national, and global communities. The department has that as its goal.
