NERC 48: Power of Place: Where Social Studies Happen @ Hartford Marriott Downtown
Apr 12 – Apr 14 all-day



Power of Place: Where Social Studies Happens

Global citizenship requires one to understand that we live and work in localized places that are interconnected through communication and transportation. Place-based inquiry engages local heritage, landscapes, opportunities and experiences as a way to make sense of the world in which we live and provides a platform to take informed action. Places illustrate the interconnectedness between history, civics, economy, and geography, provide an authentic context to develop disciplinary literacies, and serve as a rich foundation for an active and informed society. The 48th Northeast Regional Conference on the Social Studies, with Hartford, Connecticut as its backdrop, will provide opportunities for conference attendees to become immersed with place-based and inquiry focused social studies theories and practices.  In addition to traditional conference workshops and breakout sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to experience and explore the rich heritage of the Constitution State.

Co-Sponsors: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont
