The 35th Annual History & Social Science Teachers Conference will be held on October 10, 2014, at Eastern Illinois University. The theme of this year’s conference is “Supporting the Common Core,” and we will feature a day of presentations focused on how social studies teachers can and are supporting Common Core reading, writing, and historical/social studies literacy in their classrooms. We are thrilled to welcome Lee Ann Potter, Director of Educational Outreach at the Library of Congress, as our keynote speaker. The format of the conference has been revised so that teachers will now earn 5 CPDUs for attendance. For more information, see the conference flyer and descriptions of the breakout sessions and keynote.

Registration for teachers is just $55. We are also offering a special introductory rate to preservice teachers (from EIU and elsewhere) of $10 (no lunch) and $25 (with lunch). To register for the conference, go to https://sce.eiu.edu/CourseStatus.awp?&course=14HISTCONF.
