The LAMP is heading back to SXSWedu this year, and we would love to see you there! Executive Director D.C. Vito will be part of a panel called “Modern Social Studies: New Standards, New Tools.” Joining him will be teacher Christine Sciascia from Mark Twain I.S. 239, Eric Contreras from the New York City Department of Education and Kelly Whitney from iCivics.
From the session listing: “Social studies education provides a framework in which to develop a student’s role in society. It is woven into literacy, civics, geography, history and current events and provides a foundation for how students understand the world. But, are today’s students making these connections? Eric Contreras, developer of NYC’s new social studies curriculum, hosts a discussion with educators and nonprofit content creators who are re-imagining the social studies landscape to make this powerful subject more relevant and accessible to students through modern resources. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with the panelists and will receive supplemental materials and a list of resources.”
