Social Studies Department Competencies

The Newport High School social studies department offers both required and elective courses to meet NH minimum graduation requirements and to prepare students for higher academic and career goals. Social studies classes will help students develop the skills to process specific content materials and apply them to the broad competency themes of particular courses of study. Student performance in all social studies classes will be assessed in a wide variety of fashions, including tests and quizzes, written demonstrations of learning in compliance with Common Core goals, homework assignments, oral presentations, research projects, visual presentations, simulations, and cooperative learning experiences.

The social studies department supports the Newport High School 21st century skills initiatives and assesses components according to the school-wide rubrics with a primary focus on ‘Self-Directed Learners.’ The department also supports the language arts department with many of its required writing elements.
