PDF versionPDF version

Social studies and literacy are mutually inclusive. The ability to understand vocabulary and concepts is an essential part of the social studies, and social studies offers many rich topics to use to teach literacy skills. The 2012 NCSS Annual Conference offers a large number of sessions that demonstrate how to integrate literacy into social studies content or address the ELA Common Core Standards for History/Social Studies.

We've compiled this list to help anyone needing to use literacy and ELA Common Core Standards in a proposal to attend the conference or hoping to focus on literacy.
