What I Learned at the NCSS Annual Meeting--2008 Edition
Risinger, C. Frederick
Social Education, v73 n3 p145-147 Apr 2009
This is the author's third time writing a column on Internet-focused sessions and exhibit resources at the NCSS annual meeting, which, this past November, met in Houston. One of the features that most impresses teachers who participate at the NCSS annual meeting is the exhibit hall, with hundreds of booths representing textbook and trade book publishers, not-for-profit agencies, governmental agencies, companies selling supplementary materials, and even teacher-oriented t-shirts and ties. In this article, the author features several Internet-based resources for teaching social studies. Sources for these online resources described herein are: (1) My Wonderful World; (2) The National Constitution Center; (3) U.S. Department of State; (4) The U.S. Census Bureau; (5) The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History; (6) Outreach World; and (7) PBS Teachers.
