Social Studies

Mr. Werle Social Studies

The Holy Angels Social Studies Department offers a wide selection of academic courses and experiences designed to help students acquire the knowledge and skills demanded by an increasingly interdependent world. Students are challenged to analyze, evaluate, and fully comprehend the many complicated factors that shape individuals and the larger communities to which they belong. We encourage our students to both respect tradition and continually seek opportunities to inspire positive changes locally and globally.

Department Outcomes:

Within the Social Studies Department, students will be able to: 

  • Demonstrate understanding and respect for all cultures and peoples.
  • Acquire an awareness of the global interdependence of all peoples and nations.
  • Develop skills to evaluate with competence social, economic, political, and cultural systems in the U.S. and other nations.
  • Develop knowledge, insight, and positive attitudes toward citizenship, change and community involvement.
