68th Annual Conference of the Pennsylvania Council for the Social Studies – Oct 11
The 68th Annual Conference of the Pennsylvania Council for the Social Studies will be held at Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, October 11, 2021.
If we were mathematicians, we would be talking about Sum Day (10/11/21 is 10+11=21, sum day!). But we are social studies educators, and we will follow George Washington’s lead and converge on Valley Forge for the 68th Annual Conference of the Pennsylvania Council for the Social Studies. With the theme of the conference Navigating Controversy in Social Studies, the focus on the date fits since October 11th is the national Columbus Day holiday, alternatively celebrated as Indigenous Peoples’ Day!
The 75 acre Freedom Foundation campus has treasures such as the Medal of Honor Grove and, weather permitting, a campus tour will be a unique experience for the day. There will be six invited sessions by presenters specially asked to participate by the PCSS Board and 24 poster sessions selected by peer-review from applications across the Commonwealth and beyond.
