The grade 9 social studies course, Atlantic Canada in the Global Community, enables students to examine and reflect on the major issues that affect them as individuals, Atlantic Canadians, and global citizens. Students will explore and appreciate the unique physical features of this region; the diverse, cultural, ethnic, and historical backgrounds that exist in Atlantic Canada; the economic issues and challenges they face in the context of global trends; the role technology in the past, present and future for Atlantic Canada; and the importance of world view for effective global citizenship.
The Nova Scotia Department of Education sets the focus of the grade 9 social studies curriculum in the following areas:
