The Importance of Social Studies in Modern Curriculum.
 
The primary purpose of Social Studies is to help young people make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world. The United States of America is not alone in the world. Social Studies opens the door for students to begin to explore the world we live in, and prepares our children for engaging with the vast multitude of cultures that exist on planet Earth. Our children will travel abroad, and it is critically important they present themselves as good ambassadors of America and as a globally informed citizen.

Social Studies is the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote civic competence.  Within the school program, social studies provides coordinated, systematic study drawing upon such disciplines as anthropology, archaeology, economics, geography, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology, religion, and sociology, as well as appropriate content from the humanities, mathematics, and natural sciences. The primary purpose of social studies is to help young people develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world.
