OVERVIEW:

To be productive members of society, students must be critical consumers of the information they read, hear, and observe and communicate effectively about their ideas. You need to gain knowledge from a wide array of sources and examine and evaluate that information to develop and express an informed opinion, using information gained from the sources and your background knowledge. You must be able to make a connection between what you learn about the past and the present to understand how and why events happen and why people act in certain ways.
