    Dear Colleagues, <o:p></o:p>

    It is my pleasure to share with you the 2019 Virtual Issue of Theory & Research in Social Education, which you can access here:<o:p></o:p>

    The theme for this issue is "Elementary Social Studies," and I asked Dr. Sherry Field, Associate Dean for Faculty and Academic Affairs of the College of Education at the University of Texas at Austin, to write a short introduction to the issue. Dr. Field is a nationally recognized researcher in elementary social studies education; she is a former recipient of the Jean Dresden Grambs Career Research Award from NCSS, and she served as editor of Social Studies and the Young Learner from 1996-2006.<o:p></o:p>

    After reading Dr. Field's introduction, please take a look at the articles selected for this issue, all of which are illustrative of the exemplary scholarship on elementary social studies that has been published in TRSE in recent years. These six articles have been made FREE ACCESS until March 31st, 2020, so please share this virtual issue widely within your networks, particularly to your colleagues who may not have access to the journal or who are not in social studies education. <o:p></o:p>
