Social Studies Department Overview

  • Welcome! The Diman Social Studies Department is a dynamic group of educators and we are excited to share our knowlege and passion with our students. We offer three core classes: United States History I, United States History II, and World History. We also offer several electives for grade eleven and twelve students including Advanced Placement United States Government and Politics, Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to Sociology, Topics of Personal Finance and Global History. 

    The History and Social Studies curriculum is aligned with the most recent 2018 Massachusetts History and Social Studies Frameworks.  The department offerings are designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills and judgment to become responsible citizens of the nation and to have an understanding of world issues. The department takes innovative approaches to teaching events of the past and the foundations of American civic life.  Students are prepared to be active participants in our republic.
