In recognition of their exceptional teaching practices, Three Village Central School District social studies teachers Allison Kane, Dianne Kraemer and Megan Stringer recently presented at the National Council for the Social Studies Conference, held this winter in Chicago. 

Their sessions, which focused on Model Parliament and Economics, were well received by all who attended. Ms. Kane presented individually on Model Parliament and Utilizing Student Energy and Passion to Generate Understanding. Ms. Stringer and Ms. Kraemer co-presented on best practices in Economic Education, including a unit on having students complete a “Shark Tank” simulation.

According to the National Council for the Social Studies, over 2,000 requests for proposal are received and only a small percentage are accepted. The conference draws thousands of social studies teachers from across the United States.
