Stone Center for Latin American Studies Showcased at NCSS

The National Council for Social Studies (NCSS) selected Tulane University’s Stone Center for Latin American Studies as a leading center on research and Latin American educational outreach to be highlighted at the annual social studies conference in Denver, Colorado November, 2010. This video was presented to over 5,000 Social Studies educators from all 50 states to promote research and teaching of Latin America within the Social Studies classroom. Founded in 1921, National Council for the Social Studies has grown to be the largest association in the country devoted solely to social studies education. NCSS engages and supports educators in strengthening and advocating social studies. With members in all the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and 69 foreign countries, NCSS serves as an umbrella organization for elementary, secondary, and college teachers of history, geography, economics, political science, sociology, psychology, anthropology, and law-related education. Organized into a network of more than 110 affiliated state, local, and regional councils and associated groups, the NCSS membership represents K-12 classroom teachers, college and university faculty members, curriculum designers and specialists, social studies supervisors, and leaders in the various disciplines that constitute the social studies.
