Units covered: Enlightenment

Social Studies 20 is a 5-credit course that is one of the four core courses primarily for students who have taken Social Studies 10 as a prerequisite at Sir Winston Churchill High School. Its curriculum is divided into these parts:

Part A: Development and Interaction of Nations

Part B: Interdependence in the Global Environment

The textbooks used are "Century of Change" and "World Prospects - A Contemporary Study".

Beginning in the 2008 school year, the curriculum will change, and while it is not fully known at this point what will and will not be taught, it is expected that much of the information will stay the same. Thus, the above list of units will be obsolete at the end of the 2007-08 school year.
