A New Frontier for Social Studies: Taking Action
This fall, meet with other Social Studies educators, future educators, university faculty, and staff at the Fall WSCSS Conference. Attend great sessions focused on current methods and the latest content by some of the best teachers from around the state. Social Studies teachers in Washington State are always looking for good ways to teach our students in a way that helps them take action – whether it’s in writing about events of the past, in playing a role in a game or simulation in the classroom, or in using their knowledge of civics to make change in their communities. This conference is designed to help teachers do just that!
2018 Keynote Speaker:
UW Professor Joy Williamson-Lott!
The morning will start with our 2018 keynote: Joy Williamson-Lott. A professor at the College of Education at the University of Washington, Dr. Williamson-Lott’s work has focused on “education as a moral endeavor, the shifting definition of 'proper education' and 'liberation' for different social groups, and the educational histories of people of color.” Williamson-Lott's primary research agenda examines the reciprocal relationship between social movements--particularly those of the middle twentieth century--and institutions of higher education.
