ABE Social Studies 140 consists of five main topic areas:
  • Geography
  • Culture and History
  • Politics and Government
  • Economy
  • Current Events
The focus of the course at the 140 level is on the territory in which the learner resides and a comparison with other Canadian territories where appropriate. A unit on Aboriginal Rights and Land Claims is included to ensure students are well versed in this important topic. This course will provide learners with the knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary to better understand their territory and its relationship to the other territories and the rest of Canada. The current events unit provides an opportunity to ensure learners focus on national and international events and how they impact the north providing a link to and preparing learners for higher level Social Studies courses. A skills component is integrated throughout the course helping to reinforce and build on research and critical thinking skills begun in ABE English 120, 130, and 140.
