Politics, and Society

society-culture-and-politics-updated Society, Culture, and Politics: An Introductory Text for Senior High School ensures that teachers and students fully benefit from DepEd’s K to 12 curriculum by complying with its standards and competencies essentially aimed to “develop students’ awareness of cultural, social and political dynamics, and sensitivity to cultural diversity; provide them with an understanding of how culture, human agency, society and politics work; and engage them in the examination of the country’s current human development goals.”

The book integrates key concepts, theories, and methods of three social sciences; namely, sociology, anthropology, and political science. It offers students an opportunity to learn beyond the competencies embodied in the curriculum by adopting an interactive, research-oriented, and technology-aided approach.
