Dear ż School ż Families,

Welcome to the ż Social Studies Department!

With a commitment to high expectations and continuous growth as educators, the ż Social Studies team aims to develop thoughtful, informed citizens through challenging coursework in history and the social sciences.  We recognize the mastery of social studies content and skills as a key characteristic of college, career and civic readiness. Our team of highly experienced, innovative educators is focused on cutting-edge curricular, instructional and assessment strategies reflected in the New York State Social Studies Framework, inquiry approach and historical thinking skills.  We are dedicated to making the study of history and the social sciences an interesting, exciting and meaningful experience for all scholars in the ż Schools.

We hope that this site will provide valuable information on our course offerings, as well as other useful resources.
