The Social Science Program at Walt Disney Magnet School strives to expand each student´s awareness of the world around them and its progression through history. Disney focuses on building a positive classroom community and connecting that with the world in which we live.
As we dive into the Illinois State Goals and Standards of Social Sciences, teachers use an integrated, project-based approach to weave in various areas of the curriculum. Teachers provide a myriad of learning strategies to meet the needs of each student while making learning fun. This is accomplished through written reports, group projects, oral presentations, historic plays, creative artwork and a school-wide history fair.
