Society and Culture

SACE Credits: 20

Teacher: Amber Clark

You will learn about the ways in which societies constantly change and are affected by social, political, historical, environmental, economic, and cultural factors. We will investigate the ways in which people function in groups and communicate within and across cultural groups. As a class, we will develop the skills and experience to understand how individual and group involvement can influence change, and to consider the consequences of a range of possible social actions. Society and Culture gives us critical insight into the significance of factors such as gender, ethnicity, racism, class, and power structures that affect the lives and identities of individuals and groups. You will learn to challenge your own thinking and develop skills in presenting opinions supported by evidence.
