    CUFA2021 starts in a few days! As you begin planning your conference schedule, I wanted to invite those of you with potential book ideas to consider the Research and Practice in Social Studies book series with Teachers College Press and potentially schedule a time to meet virtually with me to talk about your idea. Just send me an email at and we can set something up. (and we don't have to meet next week during CUFA; I am happy to schedule a Zoom meeting whenever) 

    For more information about the book series, here is a link to the series page:
