Presenter Proposal Form
Thank you for submitting a proposal to present at the 2018 Annual Conference of the Ohio Council for the Social Studies themed, "Building Civic Literacies Across the Curriculum" on October 15th & 16th, 2018 at the Embassy Suites in Dublin, Ohio ( 5100 Upper Metro Place). This year the Ohio Council is also pleased to be home to the 2018 Great Lakes Regional Social Studies Annual Conference. The OCSS Annual Conference is the largest assembly of History/Social Studies teachers in the state. We are accepting proposals to build a high-quality program and are especially interested in hearing from practicing teachers. The first 10 practicing classroom teachers that submit an accepted proposal will have the conference fee waived. All other presenters will be asked to register for the one-day conference rate.

Please apply for and submit your proposal once. Priority will be given to proposals that have an emphasis one of the following conference strands (Citizenship & the Mid-Term Election, Information Literacy, Technology, Global & Multi-cultural Education). Please consider selecting one the following strands.

1. Teaching to promote engaged democratic citizenship in the face of the 2018 mid-term elections. How do we best incorporate civic learning across the curriculum to best prepare youth to confront issues facing citizens, communities, and our world today?

2. Information literacy in the age of fake news. How do we integrate media literacy in the classroom to create better informed and critically thinking students? How can educators help students distinguish fact from fiction?

3. Meaningful use of technology to promote civic learning. How best can new technologies work to advance student learning in the social studies?

4. Civic rights and responsibilities in an increasingly global and multicultural age. How do we leverage research-based strategies to prepare youth for an increasingly global and multicultural age?

5. Open Strand. Any proposals not connected the strands above. Proposal offers connection to main theme of the conference.

Strands represent a category of breakout sessions that will be emphasized at the conference. All other proposals will be classified into a general "Open" strand. OCSS welcomes your proposal if it fits into a general open strand, but wishes to give priority to the selected strands of the conference. If you are unsure which strand to submit your proposal in please e-mail Nancy Patterson at ocsspres@gmail.com.
