The North Carolina Council for the Social Studies has been supporting NC social studies educators for over 60 years. We are a member supported organization – our members are K-12 teachers and administrators, college professors, pre-service and retired teachers and educators from non-profit organizations.

NCCSS is an affiliate of the National Council for the Social Studies – together we work to open doors to quality curriculum resources, sound instructional practices, legislative advocacy and collaborative opportunities.

NCCSS Is Proud to Announce our Contemporary Voices Fellowship!

NCCSS has partnered with TED Education to provide specialized training for educational advocates committed to addressing contemporary cultural realities in North Carolina. Selected educators will engage in an 11-lesson course delivered via mobile app, based on Head of TED, Chris Anderson’s best-selling book, TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking. 

Throughout the year participants will advance through the course at their own pace while participating in three virtual community meetings that will help build a network of informed and engaged educators across the state. 

Our theme for this years fellowship is Teaching Social Studies in Contemporary Cultural Realities. Our theme was designed to capture compelling issues that navigate through the following strands:

  • Social Justice and Informed Action
  • Disciplinary Literacy
  • Digital and Media Literacy
  • Global issues
  • Critical Consciousness and Empowerment
