In Social Studies this year, we are learning using the NY State Inquiry approach. Each Inquiry is used in connection with other resources to enhance the student's learning. The 6 areas of study are: geography, globalization, cultural diversity, leadership and government, children's rights, and global trade.
We are currently working on the leadership and government Inquiry. We are defining different forms of government such as 'democracy' and 'dictatorship.' We will be identifying government leaders from around the world who are associated with these governments and how they were chosen as leader. Finally, we will uncover what happens in some governments if the citizens disagree with its leaders. Through news articles, photographs, videos, and other resources, students will be able to learn about government and form an answer to the main question: "Does it matter how leaders are chosen?".
