2014 OCSS Conference

OCSS Conf Logo 2014

The theme of next year’s conference, Civil Literacy:  Taking Informed Action, emphasizes the need for civic education and the literacy skills our students need to mature and grow into their role as informed, engaged, and contributing members of our republic and the market place.  The conference theme also reflects the Ohio Council for the Social Studies’ continued efforts to help teachers and educational professionals in the field and to advocate for laws and policies at the state level to ensure that we are truly “Educating Ohio’s Citizens for Tomorrow’s World.”
