Social Studies

historyThe Social Studies Program supports students in developing the attributes of the Empowered Citizen competency of Coventry Public School’s Portrait of the Graduate. Through the study of civics, all students engage in the study of civic processes, rules, and laws; examine civic and political institutions; and apply civic virtues and democratic principles. During their study of United States History, students explore people, events, and movements in United States History from the 1870s to the present with a focus on inquiry into the changes in society, economic development, and the emergence of the U.S. as a global power. An emphasis is placed on analyzing and evaluating a variety of documents, sources, and perspectives. In courses related to world history, students explore a variety of peoples, events, and movements in world history with a focus on inquiry-based learning. To achieve this focus, students are encouraged to explore cause/effect relationships within the context of history.
