Social Studies

The Plainfield South High School Social Studies Department believes in the importance of developing thoughtful and active participants for a democratic society.   Knowledgeable, critical, and open-minded citizens develop through the study of Social Studies and Sciences. 

Engaged Citizens Inquire and Question and Determine and Decipher:

-the world around us and beyond us (its borders, its history, its growth, and its future)
-our government (its foundations, its transformations and evolutions, its structures, and its applications)
-ourselves, our society, our beliefs (internally and externally)
-the economy (its impact on us, the world, and our futures) 

Be Active, Informed Citizens of the World
