Welcome to the Hollywood Hills High School Social Studies Department Website!
This site is meant to bring to you information regarding our program of studies, social studies activities, and the instructors who bring the social studies alive each day for our students at Hills. The department agrees with the Broward County Public Schools Office of Social Studies Curriculum when is says that:
"A...comprehensive social studies education provides learners with the skills and knowledge necessary to become caring, responsible, and engaged citizens in our global society."
We strive to give students the social science knowledge and skills that promote an interdisciplinary understanding of human society and the natural world. The department believes that whenever possible students should have the opportunities to learn social studies in real-world contexts. They should be able to examine artifacts, read primary source materials, engage in authentic experiences, and take field trips. Research shows that learning is enhanced when students make meaningful connections between new information that they are learning and their own experiences.
Again, welcome to the HHHS Social Studies Department. Please feel free to contact our Department Chair or any social studies teacher should you have any questions regarding our program. Contact information can be found on the Social Studies Faculty Page.
It is the mission of the Department of Social Sciences to develop capable citizens who are empowered with knowledge, skills, and attitudes to make informed and responsible decisions in a diverse and interdependent world. We endeavor to serve the community and strive to promote understanding, respect, sensitivity and acceptance of differences and are committed to peace, social justice, equity and human rights.
