Description: Social studies education is truly essential for the preservation and improvement of our constitutional democracy. Exemplary education requires the reciprocal participation of the community and the student.
Effective social studies education requires the engagement of the learner in the investigation of the social science issues.
Social studies education must afford the student the opportunity to ask essential questions, recognize patterns of behavior, think critically, create solutions, predict outcomes and draw conclusions to help them learn to solve problems. With these opportunities in place, students of social studies will be prepared as participatory citizens of the 21st Century global society.
The West Virginia State Social Studies Fair provides the opportunity for students to excel in these realms.
