The Social Studies Department at Clearwater High offers students a chance to examine and analyze the interaction of humans throughout time.
By offering courses in U.S., World and European History, the department allows students to understand the events, crisis and conflicts that shaped the world they live in. Taking these courses, along with Human Geography allows students a true understanding of the world around them and how their actions impact that world.
In American Government, students acquire the
information needed to be an active participant in the United State’s
representative government and better understand the workings of our
government and political system.
Courses in Sociology and Psychology
allow students to gain a working knowledge of how humans interact and
why the act. These courses provide students with the opportunity for
exploration of the human mind and the human condition.
Our Law Studies and Court Procedures
courses are designed to give prospective lawyers, police officers and
other law related practitioners a chance to experience what their
future career will be like.
In Economics, students will learn about how
scarce resources require all citizens of Earth to make quality
decisions regarding the use of our planets resources. Examinations of
both the Micro and Macro economies provide students with the basic
knowledge they will need to be successful financially and otherwise.
Our World Religions course allows students to
learn about a faith other than their own. By comparing and contrasting
the major religions of the world, students can see that many
similarities exist between the various religions and that there is much
we can learn from our differences.
To assist our 9th graders as they transition to high school, the social studies department offers Personal, Career and Social Development. This course provides 9th grade students with a chance to work on and improve the skills needed to achieve success, both academically and in life.
