Module 1 The Philosophy of History
Why should students invest their time and effort into learning Social Studies? In ancient Aegean culture to think was to learn. No distinction was made between science and philosophy as man began to seek an understanding of the basic truths of life - himself, the world around him, and how to interact with it. Their foundational approaches to rational thinking cared about truth and falsehood, justice, freedom, fairness, and equality. Such schools of thought were fostered and continue to be so today.
Module 2 The Roots of Democracy
Modern government in Canada is founded on the 4 Principles of Democracy and the 3 Pillars of Democracy first established in Ancient Greece. In this course, students will explore the birthplace of democracy - its city-states, culture, lifestyles, and social structure.
Module 3 Humanity
Humans migrated to North America via the Bering Land Bridge, or so many generations of students were taught. However, there are current archaeological discoveries calling into question the land bridge theory. What are the alternative theories being presented by scientists today?
Module 4 First Contact
Students will learn about certain indigenous populations who represent each of the 6 Aboriginal Cultural Areas of Canada. We'll not only look at their cultural traditions, social structures, and systems of governance but compare and contrast them with the Indigenous Peoples of other countries. In addition, key events in Canada's history between the Indigenous and Europeans will be examined.
Module 5 Eastern Civilization
The East is a collection of various regions of Afro-Eurasia that do not share a single common heritage. At certain points in history, we find in each region the embodiment of 3 key concepts: isolation, imperialism, and collectivism.
Module 6 Western Civilization
European mariners began to set sail across open waters in the late 1400s. Financed and commissioned by monarchies, they encountered unknown lands and peoples, and in the process, established new trade routes and permanent settlements in the New World. Back in Europe, various intellectual movements saw the individual as the key to cultural advancement.
