Central New York

Council for the Social Studies

CNYCSS serves our regional teaching community through providing ongoing professional development opportunities.  These include our annual professional development day and fall and spring programs, among others.  

In 2013, John Langdon and Doug Pelton formed a professional learning community dedicated to finding new approaches to teaching Global History.  This 9th and 10th grade teacher team was called PARRE (A practical approach to regaining relevance and enjoyment).  The group worked together over the years to make sense of the changes in the state curriculum and testing and to share lesson ideas and tools that worked well in the classroom.  

As changes at the state level continue, we're always looking for new members and new ideas.  Any Social Studies teacher is welcome to join - US or Global, middle or high school.  Please contact --- for additional information.

CNYCSS is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization. New York. 2657 East Fayette Street, Syracuse, NY 13224.
