History and Social Studies
PUSD’s history and social studies program connects students and teachers with the abundant historical resources, museums, colleges, and universities located in the greater Pasadena area. The history/social studies program prepares students to be responsible citizens, gain an understanding of global inter-relationships and changes in state, national and world affairs. Topics include history, geography, economics, political science, anthropology, psychology and sociology, and the humanities. The curriculum, aligned to state standards, has a multicultural perspective and is taught sequentially.
