Tip of the Week: NCSS 2012 Conference Handouts

It’s Day Two of History Geek Week. The National Council for the Social Studies conference is being held in Seattle this year and as a confirmed History Geek, here I am.

I spent yesterday in a pre-con session with Mike Yell and Geoff Schuerman who shared a wide variety of teaching strategies focused on inquiry and engagement. Some sweet stuff. I’ll be sharing out some of their goodies over the next few weeks.

But today. Today is officially Day One of the conference and I’m jacked! It doesn’t get much history geekier than this. I’m in the official middle school social studies teacher getup – khaki pants, white shirt, argyle sweater – and, along with about 8000 others, am ready to listen to, talk about, and breathe in history stuff.

A new addition to the conference this year is a site allowing presenters to post their session handouts. Very handy. So . . . if you can’t make it here, you can now play the history geek wherever you happen to be.

Simply head over to what the NCSS is calling their Library List and download to your heart’s content.

And don’t forget to head back here for more conference updates throughout the weekend.

Have fun!

    Surely would like to be there! Will the NCSS conference return to Houston?

      Sadly no. The rotation over the next few years is: St Louis, Boston, New Orleans, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Chicago. Maybe you can road trip to St. Louis?
