Congratulations to the 2013 NCSS Award and Grant Recipients. Please join us in recognizing these educators for their outstanding accomplishments in social studies education. NCSS Award and Grant recipients were formally recognized during the NCSS Annual Conference in St. Louis, Washington in November, where they will also present sessions on their outstanding work.

After three years of work, The College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards will be published this fall. The C3 Framework will be available at no cost on the NCSS website, and for purchase in print.

Below is an update from the Ohio Council for the Social Studies.

"The Ohio Council for the Social Studies is celebrating an advocacy victory. Governor Kasich has signed the biennium budget and the Ohio Department of Education has confirmed that new Social Studies assessments will be administered to 4th and 6th grade students beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. These assessments will be electronic, grade-level specific and be aligned to Ohio’s New Learning Standards for the Social Studies.

NCSS is looking for members to serve on awards selection committees. The selection committees review nominations and select recipients of NCSS awards and grants. Committee members serve a three-year term and most committee work is accomplished online or by telephone.

We would like your assistance in introducing your students to their professional organization, National Council for the Social Studies. Membership recruitment of new professionals is extremely important to NCSS both to ensure that we are reaching them with our professional resources and to have their input on professional concerns and new approaches to social studies instruction.
