The Virginia Council for Social Studies has drafted a position statement on the recently published Social Studies Standards of Learning revisions. Check out our statement by clicking the updates tab below.

Each episode of Content to Classroom provides expert analysis on a specific topic related to social studies and then supplements that analysis with guidance from master teachers on how to apply it in the classroom.  The result is an engaging and authentic discussion that will leave teachers feeling empowered to try something new.

The year 2021 marks one hundred years of NCSS service to social studies teachers, administrators, and professionals. To celebrate the significance of this monumental moment in the history of social studies education, NCSS is planning a year-long calendar experience of signature events. We invite all friends of social studies to help us make this a memorable year of professional learning to highlight NCSS milestone achievements and members and to chart our path together for the next century. ​
