The theme of this year's conference is "Uncovering the Past to Empower the Future." The Virginia Council for the Social Studies is seeking proposals that incorporate this theme into engaging and relevant presentations for educators. Through this theme, we hope to explore the following questions:- How might uncovering content look and sound different than covering content in the classroom? - How can we empower our students to be active citizens on the global stage?- How can we as educators improve our practice to better serve our students?- How can we shed light on understandings, skills, people, cultures, and events that are underrepresented in our standards?
The length of each session is 50 minutes.
Proposals are due by April 28, 2017.Presenters will be notified of proposal status (accepted or declined) via email by June 1, 2017.
