Social Studies

 

 

        The Bloomfield Social Studies Program is designed to foster democratic values and encourage responsible citizenship through the study of history.  The study of history is vital for all citizens in a democracy because it provides the avenue to reach an understanding of our selves and of our society.  Our courses provide opportunities for students to:

 

  Satisfy their longing for a sense of identity and of their time and place in the human history.

   Understand our common political vision, which is essential to liberty, equality and justice in a multicultural society.

   Develop critical thinking skills – such as the recognition of multiple perspectives and the  ability to detect bias – that will prepare them for responsible decision-making in their personal and professional lives.

 

To these ends, the program assists students in meeting the specific academic, social and civic expectations of Bloomfield High School’s Mission.
