Social Studies

Queen Creek Unified School District social studies teachers strive to develop students who are informed about the past and the present. Social studies teachers work to develop good citizens that will be ready for the 21st century world. Queen Creek Unified School District social studies teachers empower students to think critically while examining American history, world history, government, geography, and economics through primary sources, research projects, and current events. Students also have the opportunity to engage in productive classroom discussions with their peers that may not have the same world view.

Queen Creek Unified School District social studies teachers strive to develop students' reading, writing, and speaking skills so that they can express their opinions both orally and in writing. Using the AZ literacy standards for social studies allows students to integrate their language arts skills with their content knowledge of social studies to build reasoned claims that historical evidence supports.

Queen Creek Unified School District’s effective social studies classrooms excel at building critical thinking through individual and cooperative learning, which ultimately prepares our students for college and career experiences and success.
