Social Studies 10

Course Overview

Social Studies 10 concerns the story of Canada from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present. Students will study the key events, personalities, and themes that have shaped and continue to shape Canada’s evolution as an independent nation and member of the global community. Students will be challenged to develop historical empathy and be invited to engage in a variety of inquiries that sharpen their appreciation for Canada’s historical legacy and struggle to maintain a society that promotes human flourishing, hope, and justice. In addition, students will be encouraged to reflect on how the triune God calls us into harmonious and compassionate communities, how God’s omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence give us confidence that history has a purpose and a direction, and that every human being, created in the image of God (the Imago Dei) has a ‘will to meaning’. “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’” - Isaiah 46:10.
