Lets start the ball rolling

Dear students of J 1.9...
How do you find Social Studies after three weeks of lectures? Interesting? Boring? Intimidating? Tell me what you think about the course and your feelings towards it. Why do you feel as such? Is there any particular reason why you have such feelings towards the subject? Feel free to express yourself and any comments from anyone is welcome. This is just to start the ball rolling.

  2. Well for me it is an interesting subject but yet it also a tough subject. I thought that I have done the task given properly but it seemed to be that I was not answering the task given (the presentations).

  3. social studies is really an interesting subject as it teaches me to know and understand about the human behaviour and interactions very well. i am really curious to learn more about the subject because from the first topic i had gain more knowledge/information regarding the social rankings and also the importance of learning social studies in today's higher education.

  4. It is tough, no doubt. But if you make the effort to do extra reading on the topics in discussion, you'll slowly realise that it's not as difficult as you think.
    Don't worry about making mistakes. We learn better when we make mistakes.

  5. Well when I first came,I got to know that social studies had the highest rate of failures which gave me the impression that it must really be tough and uninteresting.After three weeks of lessons in social studies I think it is not as uninteresting as I thought it to be and to me it is up to individual to make the best out of everything.I feel with the guidance from the lecturers and our own effort we can succeed with flying colours.:)

  7. I'm gad to know some of you are beginning to take interest in the subject. There's so much to learn but they are all related to our life. It's just that you never looked towards that direction before. Studying Social Studies is like knowing more about our life and the life that other people live around the globe, learning about and appreciating the environment we live in and understanding how good communication among us can lead to a better life for everyone :)

  8. As for me, social studies is interesting but at the same time it's quite tough as it is more based on understanding the content rather than just reading it. I feel great as it expose me to much knowledge and values that i didn't know before.
