Good Day New Hampshire Social Studies Teachers,
The New Hampshire Council for the Social Studies is pleased to announce a virtual conference in March and April 2021, offering exciting sessions for educators of all levels. The conference will be an 8-week webinar series held on Thursday afternoons beginning March 11th and ending April 22nd. Each session will include a presentation followed by an interactive discussion moderated by a NHCSS board member. We will then close with a brief introduction to free teaching resources from the presenter or other organization along the same theme.
The NHCSS Executive Board has worked thoughtfully and diligently to bring the teachers of New Hampshire a safe and equitable professional development opportunity which allows for greater flexibility and freedom to attend. As fellow educators, we appreciate the hard work and dedication that each of you are putting into your classrooms during these difficult times and look forward to your attendance!
Our keynote event will be free to all and open the series on Thursday, March 11th at 3:30 p.m. Dr. John Lee, from the University of North Carolina, will discuss bringing C3 and inquiry-based learning to New Hampshire.
