Our social studies program is uniquely tailored for students with learning disabilities. The Laurel School of Princeton strives to maintain excellent academic standards, and provide age-appropriate content while accommodating the special needs of our students with dyslexia.
The social studies curriculum encourages our students to think analytically about the people, cultures, and environments of our local and global communities.
Social Studies are organized around chosen topics or themes outlined by the National Councial for Social Studies and New Jersey standards. Our approach uses expository texts, literature, technology, and project-based learning in a language arts learning environment. The content provides the background through which information processing deficits are remediated and critical thinking abilities are developed so students are prepared to participate competently as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world.
