Social Studies

The Social Studies Department at Léman Manhattan Preparatory School promotes critical thinking skills, research, reading and writing abilities, international mindedness, and collaborative learning.  As students learn how the past informs the present, they spend a great deal of time analyzing primary and secondary historical sources to generate the types of work done by historians and other social scientists. Learning is structured by deriving understanding from a variety of perspectives, organized into eight core historical lenses: time, continuity, and change; connections and conflict; geography; culture; society and identity; government; economics; and science and technology.

Courses offered in grades 6-12 span ancient civilizations through current events, inviting global perspective-taking designed to create well-rounded students and civic-minded leaders. Differentiated assessments and learning experiences are hallmarks of all Social Studies courses offered at Léman.  Students are required to take three credits of Social Studies and encouraged to pursue their interests through elective classes offered within the department.
