Call for Articles for the NSSSA Leader, Spring 2016

  • 1.  Call for Articles for the NSSSA Leader, Spring 2016

    Posted 01-08-2016 08:28:00 AM

    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.

    We appreciate a variety of topics related to the work of social studies leaders 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. The theme for the next issue, Spring 2016, will focus on Dimension 3 of the C3 Framework: Evaluating Sources and Using Evidence.

    We would also like attendees from the Fall 2015 Conference in New Orleans to consider sharing a paragraph or two about sessions attended. This will help provide a first-person, being-there experience for members who were unable to attend the conference. 

    Submissions should typically be between 1500 and 3000 words in length and should fit APA style. We discourage the use of endnotes. Membership is not a requirement for publication consideration. We are not looking for dense, empirical research, but rather a wide variety of pieces that will be of practical interest to the members.

    Spring 2016 submissions will receive full consideration if received by Tuesday, March 15, 2016. 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.
