ESC REGION 10 SOCIAL STUDIES UPDATE

February 2020

Hello From Your R10 Social Studies K-12 Consultant

Welcome Back!


If my counting is correct, you are now only about three or four weeks away from Spring Break! You can do this!


I have always felt that the stretch from MLK Jr. Day to Spring Break is one of the toughest of the school year. Here's to hoping that you are keeping warm and staying sane this time of year.


Please feel free to share any new resources or gems that you find or know of.


We have some exciting professional development opportunities coming soon. As always, I am always available to help you with resources and would be happy to come out and work with you to support any needs you have. Please follow us on Twitter and sign up for the Social Studies Listserv.


Look for us on Twitter - @Region10SS


Looking forward to creating a community of Social Studies Educators!
