NCSS 101st Annual Conference Call for Reviewers

National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) is seeking individuals interested in helping shape the NCSS 101st Annual Conference by reviewing conference session proposals.

Reviewers will read and rate 12-15 proposals between March 22 and April 17. The work is done entirely online. Individuals will be assigned proposals which are closely aligned to the subject areas and grade levels they provide. Reviewers read and rate the proposals using a rubric developed by the program committee. The committee will use these review scores when selecting the presentations that will be a part of the conference program.

As an added incentive, reviewers receive a discount off the full conference member rate as thanks for their work.
