MHS Social Studies Department

The Social Studies Department strives to make history class a meaningful, relevant and engaging experience in which students are challenged to think critically about past events, make connections to their own lives and draw conclusions as to how these events have impacted the state of the world today. Using Facing History and Ourselves curricula and pedagogy, lessons ask students to reflect on individual actions and choices that have shaped history all the while discovering their role as active, productive citizens within their own schools and communities.
