The tentative schedule for the conference is as follows. Final plans will be indicated in a special NSCSS newsletter mailing in February.

There will be a registration form at the end of this newsletter and also through a special mailing in late February. Teachers are to indicate on their registration forms their first, second and third choices with reference to which cluster of museums they would like to visit.

NCSS ANNUAL CONVENTION

Orlando hosted the 1999 Annual Convention and did a great job of providing splendid keynote speakers, such as Helmut Schmidt, former Chancellor of Germany, and Ray Suarez of National Public Radio. There were over 6000 educators in attendance and hundreds of great presentations available for all grade levels and content areas. The energy generated in the conference environment is one that can not be duplicated. Surrounding oneself with thousands of dedicated, enthusiastic, creative social studies educators is such a great feeling and keeps one coming back for more. Plan to attend next November in San Antonio, Texas. It is such a great, warm place to be in November. Susan TooheySocial Studies Assistant Supervisor.
