Welcome to the KCSS

As social studies educators, you are responsible for teaching students the content knowledge, discipline specific thinking skills, and civic values that are vital for fulfilling the duties of citizenship in a participatory democracy. Our task at the Kansas Council for the Social Studies is to provide leadership, service, and support to make your job easier.

So we've redesigned our site to highlight teacher resources such as lesson plans and web sites, membership information, annual conference information, and updated social studies news / announcements. We're also excited about our new KCSS blog and social media tools - our hope is that you will use all of these resources to connect with others and to improve social studies instruction in Kansas. We're looking forward to working with you.
