About the course:
Social Studies is a course that links skills and concepts from past experience. After looking at Globalism in Social Studies 10, Social Studies 20 explores nationalism both in Canada and in an international context. The key issue being answered in this course is to what extent should we embrace nationalism? This key issue is then split into four related issues that will be answered by the end of the term. Students’ will be using past information to help them gain a deeper understanding in the topics and will also be using Social Study skills ranging from looking at topics from multiple perspective to interpreting maps. By the end of the year students should have a better understanding on the changing world they live in and how nationalism fits into that world.
