Background of the Study In our present life, education has evolved like any other technologies. It became more exciting with the use of e-Learning. According to e-Learning Consulting (2012), e-Learning is the use of technology to enable people to learn anytime and anywhere. E-Learning can include training, the delivery of just-in-time information and guidance from experts. E-Learning has a lot of advantages to the students like the students can access e-Learning course at any time, and only as much as they need it. It will make lazy students go to school. It will encourage a lot of students to do more and learn more. Today in our generation, professionals, students, and politicians are greatly intelligent in Social Studies (Sibika at Kultura). It is one of the most interesting subjects that come with a galore of advantages. So teachers need to procure adequate knowledge in this subject and plan their lessons accordingly.
The National Council of Teachers in English (2008) defines literacy as a collection of cultural and communicative practices shared among members of particular groups. Classrooms are cultures in which the development of these practices not only reflects the social studies, but also expands knowledge of the social studies while fostering civic competence among students. Planning literacy events (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) around content-related literature is a natural way to bring together literacy and social studies. The authors share literacy strategies that engage young learners in actively and socially constructing knowledge of history, self, and others. That knowledge then becomes the foundation for a democratic classroom where students “develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world” (National Council for the Social Studies 1994, 3).
