Social studies, at the most basic level, is the study of people. The Georgia Department of Education reminds us that the goal of social studies is not for students to memorize a laundry list of facts but rather to help them learn how to analyze issues, solve problems, and develop the critical thinking skills necessary to become engaged and productive citizens. Join GPB Education as we explore new ways to understand the enduring past and make historical connections to the evolving present with our thousands of free interactive resources on government, history, economics, citizenship, and more!
