Social Studies

Social Studies at the 30 level is a requirement to graduate in Alberta.  

At SGEC we offer social studies Dash 1 and 2. 

Social studies provides opportunities for students to develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge that will enable them to become engaged, active, informed and responsible citizens.

Recognition and respect for individual and collective identity is essential in a pluralistic and democratic society. Social studies helps students develop their sense of self and community, encouraging them to affirm their place as citizens in an inclusive, democratic society.

Generally, the "dash 1" (-1) stream is for students who are university bound. The "dash 2" (-2) stream, while still academic, is suited for students who need more assistance in the subject matter. After completing the 10-2, 20-2 and 30-2 stream, a student can move to the 30-1 course in the subject.
