This month, our topic is American Indian histories and cultures.

Each year, social studies teachers around the state work extremely hard to create diverse and inclusive curriculums around United States history. But even still, certain people groups tend to get the short end of the stick when it comes to classroom time and attention, especially American Indians. This month, our Scholars' Hour panel of experts is trying to change that by sharing practical, applicable, and dynamic information about American Indian histories and cultures.

Come and join us to learn more about how to include American Indians in your U.S. History or state curriculum beyond the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Virginia Council for Social Studies is excited to bring you our newest resource for social studies teachers across the state and country! 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.

Every third Thursday of the month, the Virginia Council for Social Studies hosts a virtual meeting called "Scholars' Hour" in which teachers from around the state can gather to discuss social studies content, strategies, and technology.
