Good morning friends! Don’t forget that the 2019 Florida Council for the Social Studies Annual Conference is coming soon (and you can register here!). Not only do we have some excellent sessions planned, but we also have some fine exhibitors joining us. Today, we’ll highlight just a few.
Teaching With Primary Sources
If you aren’t familiar with the work of Dr. Scott Waring and his folks in collaboration with the Library of Congress, you should be! They offer some excellent resources to support the use of primary sources in the classroom, and of course Dr. Waring also has his annual SOURCES conference! Be sure to stop by their table during the FCSS conference.
The Sikh Coalition
The Sikh Coalition have been generous supporters of FCSS over the years, and we are excited to have them joining us this year as well. They do some excellent work sharing educational resources and tools for folks interested in learning about the Sikh community, as well as on the importance of religious liberty, so integral to our lives as Americans. Check out their table during the FCSS conference!
Indiana University Center on Representative Government
The Center on Representative Government, from Indiana University, are strong supporters of FCSS, and offer some excellent resources relating to civic education!
The Center on Representative Government is a non-partisan, educational institution that has developed an extensive array of free civics education resources and activities to improve the public’s understanding of the role of representative government, to strengthen civic engagement, and to teach the skills that are essential to sustaining our form of representative democracy.
At the core of the Center’s work is the belief that our nation’s great experiment of representative democracy has served us well for more than 200 years, but it fundamentally rests on an informed electorate that understands our system of government and participates in our civic life. Be sure to check out their table at the conference!
We’ll highlight additional exhibitors and sessions over the course of the next few weeks. Be sure to check this space for more! Register for the conference today!
