    Honors Global History & Geography - This course combines the standard two year study of Global History into one year, generally considered to be one of the most difficult courses a New York State student takes during their high school career.  Students are assessed at the end of their year of study by the New York State Regents Examination for Global History and Geography.  Completion of this course and a passing grade on the Regents examination are necessary for graduation.  The Honors course further challenges student research and writing development through a series of in-depth readings, projects and papers.
     
    Honors Participation in Government - This course is designed to be a culminating course of study that focuses on Social Studies Learning Standard 5—Civics, Citizenship, and Government (the common core civics standard). The Honors section further challenges student research and writing development through a series of in-depth readings, projects and papers that focus on leadership in America. Participation in Government is the civics capstone of a student’s K–12 social studies experience. Upon entering 12th grade, students should be ready to synthesize and apply this content-rich experience to the study of contemporary and/or historic public issues and to increase the student’s awareness of their rights and responsibilities as a citizen. The term participation is interpreted in its broad sense. It is designed to engage students in the analysis of public policies and issues that are relevant to individual students. Fundamental to Participation in Government is a course of study that has students defining, analyzing, monitoring, and discussing issues and policies. The course reflects an issue-based approach to public policy, the tools and skills needed in real-world learning experiences, and the knowledge needed for effective citizenship.
