Social Studies

Secondary 3 – 4

 Social Studies is an elective subject that is compulsory for secondary school students. Students will learn to express their thoughts and opinions in a mature and intelligent manner. They will learn effective comprehension skills to cope with this reading-intensive subject.

Constructive discussions on global issues are raised to trigger critical thinking so as to hone in students’ reasoning and inference skills. This will enable them to tackle, in a coherent manner, source-based components consisting of a variety of sources ranging from political statements, excerpts from speeches, memoirs, interviews, photographs, comments from magazines, newspaper articles, and blogs as well as political cartoons or illustrations.
