Welcome to Mr. Slifka's Social Studies Site!With the implementation of the new Social Studies Framework, New York State has changed the curriculum and concepts that we will be focusing on to reflect the needs of 21st century civically- engaged scholars. This is the second year that the US History and Government Regents exam will reflect the new framework, concepts and skills. Also, we are continuing to offer AP Government and Politics!
"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
