Event description
The Connecticut Council for the Social Studies invites educators for a day of learning, networking, and advocacy.

About this Event

The Connecticut Council for the Social Studies (CCSS), a Gold Star affiliate of the National Council for the Social Studies, is the professional state organization for social studies educators. Our mission is to advocate for and advance the teaching of social studies at all grade levels. Our board is comprised of volunteer K-12 teachers and administrators, college professors, and personnel from museums and historical/cultural organizations.

The CCSS Annual Fall Conference brings together educators and administrators from elementary, middle and high schools, along with university social studies education students and instructors, and professionals from museums and historical/cultural organizations. The variety of workshops, panel discussions and exhibitors provides ample opportunities for professional development, networking, and inspiration. We also look forward to recognizing this past year's CCSS award winners and their accomplishments.
