Objectives

The Social Studies Council (SSC) seeks to promote the study of social studies in Alberta and constantly improve the teaching of social studies.

Activities

Social studies resource people are available upon request.

The Council holds an annual meeting with well-known keynote speakers and a variety of workshops providing stimulation, incentives and classroom tips. The conference provides an invaluable opportunity for interaction and liaison among colleagues, and a perfect opportunity for networking.
