The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Social Studies Consultant updates this site with current information regarding professional development opportunities, monthly social studies chats, and other information regarding building a statewide social studies professional learning network (PLN). 

You can find me on Twitter @WisDPIsocstu , on Facebook at Social Studies Education in Wisconsin , on Diigo (social bookmarking) at username kmickeyd , or at Linked In.  I also have a Scoop.It page on social studies topics of interest, and another on Professional Development, especially for Wisconsin teachers

Please check the links on the left nav bar to other sites of interest for Wisconsin Social Studies teachers. 

Where do I get all this information from?

You can get the listserv through email at this website or by contacting me with your email address.  Listserv emails are announcement only, and come to your email about once every other week during the school year.
