Teacher Resources

Are you looking for resources on a certain subject? Our outreach committee is working to curate a list of resources that span a wide array of topics and applications. As with any tool, teachers will want to consult their own district regarding expectations and restrictions surrounding the use of online materials that require a log-in.  Additionally, prior to sharing a contest opportunity with your students, make sure that your principal or district leadership has reviewed and approved all components of the contest. 

Content to Classroom Podcast

The Virginia Council for Social Studies is excited to bring you our newest resource for social studies teachers across the state and country! Each episode of Content to Classroom provides expert analysis on a specific topic related to social studies and then supplements that analysis with guidance from master teachers on how to apply it in the classroom. The result is an engaging and authentic discussion that will leave teachers feeling empowered to try something new.

Scholar's Hour

Every third Thursday of the month, the Virginia Council for Social Studies hosts a virtual meeting called "Scholars' Hour" in which teachers from around the state can gather to discuss social studies content, strategies, and technology.
