Join us for professional development in March 2022 that will engage, empower and inspire you in the Social Studies classroom.   We are planning for an in-person convention, and attendees that register for the full convention will have access to recordings of all presentation sessions through April 2022.  In-person registration includes breakfast and lunch on Thursday and Friday, and a continental breakfast on Saturday morning.  Workshop sessions focus on connections in and for the classroom, teaching strategies to engage today’s learner and innovations for a new era in Social Studies.
