Welcome to ALCSS
We are an organization of educators from K-12 and higher education in the state of Alabama dedicated to social studies education. Our goal is to enable students to become global citizens and prepare them for the future. We do this by engaging educators from around the state in collaboration to empower them to be advocates within their own classrooms. We want students to become explorers of their world and to make connections between the past and present to become informed decision makers in the future.
We welcome all educators who share this same passion!
Each year we host an annual conference for educators. All subject areas are invited so that we can work together for our students. The conference moves every year to two years to reach every part of Alabama for inclusion of all educators. Keep on the look out for more information. If you would like to register for the conference download the following and email or mail it back as stated on the form.
