Ohio Council for the Social Studies 2018 Conference

October 15, 2018 to October 16, 2018

Theme: Building Civic Literacies Across the Curriculum

This year’s conference returns to the state’s capital and entertains timely topics in addition to the ongoing search for excellence in social studies teaching and learning.

This year’s conference addresses the following four conference sub-themes:

  • Teaching to promote engaged democratic citizenship in the face of the 2018 mid-term elections.  How do we best incorporate civic learning across the curriculum to best prepare youth to confront issues facing citizens, communities, and our world today?
  • Information literacy in the age of fake news. How do we integrate media literacy in the classroom to create better informed and critically thinking students?  How can educators help students distinguish fact from fiction?
  • Meaningful use of technology to promote civic learning. How best can new technologies work to advance student learning in the social studies?  
  • An increasingly global and multicultural age.  How do we present leverage research-based strategies to prepare youth for an increasingly global and multicultural age?  

Advance registration is available online through October 8, 2018.
All persons attending the conference, including participants, presenters, co-presenters, spouses, students, and facilitators, must register. All conference pre-registrations include meals and snacks. Non-member registration includes a year’s membership.
