Upcoming NCSS & Affiliate Council Events
July 24, 2017 to July 26, 2017
In an age of Alternative Facts, how do we teach and motivate our students to develop habits of questioning and reflection tied to our core content in the social studies?
Join Project Look Sharp (Ithaca College’s highly-respected media literacy initiative) at the Newseum for a dynamic 3-day workshop that will change your teaching practice. You will walk away with new understandings of media literacy approaches, ways to address content knowledge, practice with new pedagogies, curriculum materials that you can use immediately in your classroom, and a plan for classroom integration.

The NCSS Technology Community will be hosting a free webinar on Wednesday, August 2nd to support teachers as they prep for the coming school year. We’ve invited Tim Lent of New Visions for Public Schools to present on the global history curriculum they have developed as well as teacher John Wasmund from East Bronx Academy to talk about how he’s modified and implemented this curriculum in his classroom. Their techniques and approach are not so specific to global history (and our tech tools most definitely are not), so all should feel welcome to tune in!
