At the secondary level, grades 9-12, students expand their understanding of history and the social sciences. Following the elementary and middle grades use of five major conceptual lenses (history, culture, geography, economics, and government), the secondary school social studies program builds upon the study of North Carolina and the United States from grades four, five, and eight, and the study of the world from grades six, and seven. The secondary level moves to a formal study of world and United States history; links civics and economics in a course intended to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to enter effectively into adult citizenship; and suggests a variety of social studies electives.
