High School Social Studies

The Social Studies PLC brings together teachers from different counties in northwestern North Carolina, faculty from Appalachian State University, and clinical interns from Appalachian in meetings where we can discuss relevant social studies issues, news, resources, and opportunities. Through our collaboration, we have presented at conferences, organized staff development opportunities, produced many useful resources, discussed and brainstormed solutions to issues, shared opportunities, resources, and ideas, and grown professionally as a group.

Our hope is to continue this work and effectively share our work with our districts and colleagues as well as with Appalachian State University faculty and students. Altogether, this should help provide ideas, resources, and support for professionals in our districts and better serve our students and communities.
