The social studies curriculum at Main Street School is designed to reflect the goals and objectives of both the National Council for Social Studies and the New York State Framework for Social Studies. Social studies instruction helps students understand their roots, make connections to the past, recognize the commonality of people across time, appreciate the delicate balance of rights and responsibilities in an open society and develop the habits of thoughtful analysis and reflective thinking. Students are introduced to the K-12 Enduring Understandings for Social Studies, they apply these big ideas as they explore history.
