INFANTS 1 and 2

The content of the Social Studies Curriculum of the Ministry of Education spans the core disciplines of History, Geography, Anthropology, Economics and Political Science. Emphasis is placed on the processes and skills involved in social interaction to assist in creating students who ultimately become informed, confident, and effective citizens of Trinidad and Tobago. World complexities resulting from the transformative effects of technology now make it mandatory for students to master the skills of communication, critical thinking, problem solving enable them to better understand, participate in, and contribute to the local, national and global communities in which they live and work. Young minds must thus be nurtured to function competently and effectively in today’s complex society.

Understanding the past makes children better understand and appreciate the present so as to significantly impact the future. An understanding of other cultures will prepare the student to competently examine and celebrate their own.

The content of the Social Studies Curriculum is therefore based upon the following paradigms:

  • Personal and Social Development
  • Our Heritage
  • Our Environment
  • Organisations
  • Change

The desired outcomes include:

  • An understanding of how societies are organized and how they function.
  • An understanding of the ways in which people and communities respond
  • An understanding of the varying Perspectives, Values, and Viewpoints that shape community responses, and,
  • An understanding and clarification of one’s own particular identity in relation to one’s heritage and context.
