Professional Learning

The Kansas Council for the Social Studies is committed to supporting and encouraging the professional growth of K-12 social studies teachers across the state. Our goal is to offer a variety of opportunities as you work to become better at your craft. Besides the information on outside resources available here on the News page, we also offer face to face workshops, a yearly conference in partnership with other professional organizations in Kansas, and will soon begin providing just-in-time learning via iTunes U.
