Social studies is the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote effective citizenry. Within the K-12 program, social studies provide coordinated, systematic study drawing upon such disciplines as economics, history, geography, anthropology, archaeology, law, philosophy, political science, religion, and sociology, as well as appropriate content from the humanities, mathematics, and the natural sciences. Social studies promotes knowledge of and involvement in civic affairs. And because civic issues—such as health care, crime, and foreign policy—are multidisciplinary in nature, understanding these issues and developing resolutions to them require multidisciplinary education. Social studies prepares the nation’s young people for college, careers, and civic life.~National Council for the Social Studies
