    -------------------------------------------
    The Leader is the biannual newsletter of the National Social Studies Supervisors Association (NSSSA). We regularly publish articles on a wide variety of topics; from opinion pieces to policy matters and academic research. The Leader contains high-quality articles and focuses on topics of interest to social studies supervisors, leaders, teachers, and professors.

    The theme for the next issue, Fall 2015, will focus on Dimension 2 of the C3 Framework: Applying Disciplinary Concepts and Tools. We appreciate variety and seek manuscripts that will appeal to our diverse membership of social studies supervisors, district/state leaders and policymakers, classroom teachers, and college and university faculty.

    Submissions should typically be between 1500 and 3000 words in length and should fit APA style (6th edition). We discourage the use of endnotes. Membership is not a requirement for publication consideration.We are not looking for dense, empirical research, but we publish a wide variety of pieces that are of interest to social studies leaders.

    Fall 2015 submissions will receive full consideration if received by Tuesday, September 15, 2015. If you are interested in submitting a manuscript for publication consideration, please contact Publications Coordinator Becky Ryckeley via e-mail. She may be reached at beckryck@gmail.com.
