About the Social Studies Department:
The mission of the social studies department at Glenbard South High School is to deliver daily course instruction and develop social studies literacy in the secondary classroom. Our curricular program is dedicated to three distinct areas of classroom teaching: incorporating themes, using variating instructional techniques and teaching styles, and improving student skills. The vision of our mission is to be an agent for engaging students in problem solving situations that will allow students to effectively participate in and understand the world around them.
