About

SSGates Goal is to be place where current events are placed in a Social Studies context.  SSGates chosen metaphor is a ship, that we have limited powers against the sea. We must nagivate the past to understand the future. Our critical lens consider future possibilities is the winds of history. We must learn how to sail considering the forces of history which can be grouped into four main ideas - social, economic, geographic and political

To begin this journey we need to consider what is learning? Is learning about memorizing what are thought to be facts, which can lead to indocternation. Are is learning about dealing with the "uncertainties" of life. How do we make our best decisions
