The Massachusetts Council on the Social Studies (MCSS) is an organization with a clear mission. Simply, we are “Advocating for Social Studies and Civics Education for all students.”

And we invite your institution, your organization, your department, your school to join us in our common mission.

We now offer in addition to the current individual membership rates the following:

Secondary School History/SS Department – $125
Now for this yearly fee, the entire department benefits! By providing MCSS with a contact for each department who may forward all the latest news, issues, and professional development opportunities, we reach a greater number of those who share our mission. The reduced NERC registration rates as well as the early registration opportunities extend to each department member when the Departmental Membership is in effect.

Elementary School Building – $75
The elementary classroom teacher is overloaded with all the preparation and management issues that characterize the elementary school day. We realize that the elementary classroom teacher can not afford financially or time-wise to join each discipline’s advocacy group, but by having the entire building join MCSS for this yearly fee, each teacher would be able to receive all the latest news and opportunities and the benefit of the member rate for NERC.

Institution/Organization – $125
There are more than teachers concerned with Social Studies and Civics Education, and MCSS is not representative of only teachers but of all who are concerned with our shared mission. By your institution/organization becoming a member of MCSS our voice becomes stronger, reaches more decision-makers, and furthers all the events we so sincerely wish to see expand: We the People competitions, History Day, Geography Fairs, students registering to vote, Student Government Day, Civics Day Projects, and so on. Not only do your members receive the reduced NERC rates and keep up with the issues and news from NCSS and local sources, your events and programs reach a wider audience and are highlighted on our calendar notices regularly.
