2012 NCSS Annual Conference in Seattle

The National Council for the Social Studies will be holding its annual conference in Seattle on November 16-18, 2012, with the theme "Opening Windows to the World." They invite you to think about how you can open one of these windows by submitting a conference presentation proposal. Keep in mind that the 2012 conference will draw attendees from both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border, as well as other countries. They will be looking for proposals that speak to the conference subthemes while also addressing the common concerns of social studies educators everywhere.

The deadline for submitting proposals is Monday, February 20, 2012.

2012 Conference Sub-themes include:
I. Windows to Literacy in a Digital Age
II. Windows to the Past
III. Windows to a Sustainable Future
IV. Windows to Excellence in Equity
V. Windows to Global Interdependence
VI. Windows to the Pacific Northwest and Pacific Rim

If you have (or will have) a book out (fiction or nonfiction) that addresses a social studies topic and/or speaks to one of these sub-themes, it might be worth your while to submit a proposal. More information is available here.
