During these first years of school and social development, “social studies” focuses on children’s acquisition of skills needed to function well in group settings, developing a sense of empathy and responsibility, and exploring their budding awareness of “sameness” and “differentness” and what these mean in a diverse community. For Greene students, social studies topics are organized by theme. The teachers use an approach that integrates themes with literature, art and music to help students make connections across disciplines and more fully internalize the underlying concepts.
