We are now accepting session proposals for the 2014 OCSS Conference. The theme of next year’s conference Civic Literacy: Taking Informed Action
reflects OCSS’s work to assist Ohio’s teachers in their efforts prepare students for new state level testing and their role as citizens. Civic Literacy: Taking
Informed Action also recognizes the push for social studies teachers to integrate nonfiction reading and writing into classrooms and OCSS’s work to re‐
store World History to a required course for graduation in Ohio (SB 96). Please go to Conference Proposal Form on the OCSS website to submit your
proposals by March 31, 2014. FREE conference registration is available for the first 10 practicing classroom teachers who submit an accepted session proposal.
