Social Studies

Social Studies in Jeffco

Jeffco social studies curricula are based on Colorado Academic Standards, developed by the Colorado Department of Education.

Social Studies at Bear Creek

The Social Studies Department is proud to host one of the broadest programs within the district and state.

We currently offer a multitude of core classes and electives including Anthropology, Sociology and Psychology. In addition, we offer eight different honors and AP course options with the goal of adding several more over the next couple of years. Students now also have the opportunity to earn college credit for some of their social studies classes from CU Denver.

Every teacher in our department emphasizes strong literacy and application skills while focusing on creativity, critical thinking and technological skills.
