The Social Studies Professional — known as TSSP — is the official member newsletter of NCSS. TSSP features the latest news, new resource and professional development listings, and information on local and state meetings. TSSP is emailed as a member benefit (via MailChimp) and posted on the NCSS website eight (8) times a year (the issues are named January/February, March, April, May/June, July/August, September, October, and November/December)

We post the current issue of TSSP here the day it's finished. There's also an archive of past issues always at your fingertips.

Past Issues

Announcements, Advertising, & Deadlines

Announcements of events (training, awards, grants, or contests) must be timely: it must be likely that NCSS members will read your announcement in advance of the dates listed in your announcement. Also, some issues appear "late" in the month due to necessary delays: Jan/Feb due to late incoming reports from the NCSS Annual Conference, and May/June due to Board of Director Election results.

See TSSP Guidelines for more information.

The NCSS Career Center, with information for job seekers and recruiters, is at (TSSP does not include position announcements.)
