Social Studies 8 (Mr. Lavrik)

Welcome to the Social Studies 8 Course!

Students are encouraged to approach the topics studied with an inquisitive mindset and critical analysis of the past events. We have to study our past, identify our role as humans in present and only then will we be able to steer our direction towards the future.
