Call for Presentations

THIS YEAR’S THEME IS “E PLURIBUS UNUM: OUT OF MANY, ONE”

E PLURIBUS UNUM. The Massachusetts Council for the Social Studies (Mass Council, or MCSS) is proud to be hosting the 49th annual Northeast Regional Conference for the Social Studies for K-12 teachers and college and university faculty in the New England states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, as well as the states of New York and New Jersey.

Social Studies is a large academic field that includes history, geography, economics, civics and government, archaeology, and the behavioral sciences such as psychology and sociology. Collectively, Social Studies is intended to prepare students to hold the “Office of Citizen” and is essential for responsible citizenship in areas such as history and government, geography, economics, sociology, and communication. Social Studies creates opportunities for students to apply critical thinking and content knowledge to analyze information on complex issues and to seek solutions to real-world problems.
