From New Year’s Resolutions to New Year’s Priorities

Many of us write a set of resolutions to help us plan for our start to the new year.  This year I had a little help in writing my resolutions: our new NCSS Strategic Plan.  The Strategic Plan identifies five Priorities – Collaboration, Communication, Innovation, Inclusiveness, and Influence & Leadership – which speak strongly to me as more than just a pledge for our organization’s future.  They frame my professional and personal commitment to social studies education in 2017.
