My friends and fellow social studies educators, it is time to share your heroic ideas for social studies teaching and learning. Are you a practicing or retired teacher, teacher educator, researcher, or pre-service student? Do you know of better ways to reach ELL students in the social studies? Do you have a brilliant session on mindfulness you believe would benefit our community? Do you have research on best practice that would make a difference for teachers and students? Is there a great content session that you are eager to share with folks, whether that is relating to LGBTQ+ history and pedagogy or a new approach to considering the Founding Fathers? Is there a discussion of assessment that you want to have with like minded (and even not so like minded) colleagues? What about new ways to approach controversial issues?

If you have any of this, or more, join us in the fall at the Florida Council for the Social Studies Annual Conference, October 18-October 20 at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando! Proposals are being accepted until June 15th, and we are eager to learn from you. This year’s theme is Heroes and Villains: Teaching in a Polarized World. We want YOU to present to and learn from your colleagues and friends!

You can submit your proposal through this link: Conference Proposals. We really hope to have you join us!
