Because the 2014 National Council for the Social Studies Conference is being held in Boston from Nov. 21st - 23rd, the Maine Council has decided not to hold a statewide conference this year and is instead holding regional sessions. We encourage teachers to also attend the national conference and are looking into chartering a bus for one day to and from Boston. More information will be coming as the agenda for the national conference becomes known.

During the school year, the Maine Council for the Social Studies electronically sends a bimonthly newsletter containing professional development opportunities and teaching resources to subscribers. If you would like to receive this newsletter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and type "subscribe" in the subject line. The link to our most recent newsletter is below.
