2013 Conference Wrap Up:
The 45th annual Northeast Regional Conference on the Social Studies
was held at the Sturbridge Host Hotel from Monday April 7th through Wednesday April 9th, 2014
The focus of this year’s theme, “Social Studies in the Balance,” was to investigate how social studies teachers and administrators can balance several educational priorities, including the Common Core State Standards, and yet maintain the importance and value of a rich and rigorous social studies education for all of our students.
For more information about the conference and the many wonderful sessions offered, please download the NERC 45 Booklet.
