Philosophy

The role of the Social Science Department at the Rock Academy is to facilitate students’ fluency with historical documents. We provide an environment which facilitates, teaches, and challenges students’ analysis and historical argumentation (based on facts not feelings) while exploring differing points of view through primary source documents including, but not limited to propaganda, speeches, court rulings, journal entries, and political cartoons.
