Karly Gress Field Trips Can be Decolonizing February 28th, 2011 Field Trips and the Social Studies Curriculum Field trips can be a very effective instructional method, particulariy in Social Studies.... especially if they are planned well and can supplement and provide more insight into course topics... In the Saskatchewan Curriculum Guide for Social Studies, it states that "the purpose of Kindergarten to Grade 12 Social Studies is to help students know and appreciate the past, understand the present,
influence the future, and make connections between events and issues
of the past, the present, and the future." The FOUR goals of K-12 Social Studies and Social Sciences Education are to:
Examine the local, indigenous, and global interactions and
interdependence of individuals, societies, cultures, and nations
Analyze the dynamic relationships of people with the land,
environments, events, and ideas as they have affected the past,
shape the present, and influence the future (DR). THREE:
• Investigate the processes and structures of power and authority, and the implications for individuals, communities, and nations (PA).
Examine various worldviews about the use and distribution of
resources and wealth in relation to the needs of individuals,
communities, nations, and the natural environment, and
contribute to sustainable development (RW).
